    I was scared they would attack me at first, so i showed signs of surrender. They became friendly to me when they saw how scared i was. They spoke English and helped me to find my way to my family.
  • Lost

    Although it was Spring time in America, the snow in the mountains still haven't melt completely. While walking along the road behind my parents, i tripped on a rock and had to rest for a while. I tried yelling for parents but they were already too far ahead! I figured i would catch up with them soon, but i was wrong, there was two roads to choose from and i didn't know which one to take! I took the road to the left and came upon the Native American's tribe.
