Me in front of Truman's real house
(Truman was U.S.' president during WWII)


DESTINATION 2
WORLD WAR I MUSEUM





He's name's Dennis! He's a veteran.
See the flowers below the glass floor?
Those are WWI remarkable flowers. There are 10,000 down there.
When all trees were tore down during the war, those flowers were the ones that had remained.
I could sense the deep feeling Dennis had for the people who died during the war
 as he briefly talked about it.

DESTINATION 3
STEAMBOAT ARABIA

FYI: This museum is about a cruise buried in a man's private land
and he's been using mostly his private savings to dig and bring it up.
The government also helped him here and there (I'm not sure) 
and they provided this museum space for him to put the treasures (I think).





I was just proud to hold this nail (what do you call it?)
 that's hundreds years old!

Original menu from the boat's restaurant

That bgiant wheel is and original property of the boat. It still spins.

This piece of the boat that I'm not sure about (I think it's one of those things that hold a boat from below) has to be treated well.
They shower this thing everyday for 14 hours with some kind of long'lasting formulated chemical liquids - they have to do it for 10 years straight.
Fancy shower, huh?

THIS THING IS AMAZING!
You put two quarters and one cent in it, and your one cent coin
will be straightened and shaped like an oval!


... LIKE THIS!



DESTINATION 4
THE CHURCH

Every exchange student gave their presentation!














DESTINATION 4
ICE SKATING ARENA

I did not go for it... I was in an extremely bad mood because the presentations took more than 8 minutes per country he he he...
Tega banget guenya setengah gitu... Padahal udah ngebela-belaiin ditegur petugas gara-gara manjet :"(




... And some christmas lights!







DESTINATION 5
WHATEVER SQUARE IT IS

Just to take another group picture unfortunately, not to shop.
