The Place I Most Want To Visit Essay

I have heard and read a lot about the beautiful countries in the world. However, the country I would like to visit is Great Britain. My choice is based on the following reasons. Firstly, I have been interested in this country since school years as English was one of the subjects studied at school. The pictures of the old buildings in text-books have inspired me and visiting this country has become somewhat a dream for me. Most of all I’d like to visit London and its sights. Among them there are: Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, Buck ingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral, LondonBridge, the Tower of London. London is situated on the river Thames.I would like to visit all the famous museums in London as well, especially British Museum. I could see many historical heritages gathering from all over the world there.

Thus, traveling in this big country would be really very interesting. I should therefore welcome any opportunity to visit this country.

But the author ,as I think, cares more about Hindu culture and tends to foreground it. The life for the first-generation immigrants is very hard. They should not only get used to the new environment, but also bear loneliness. This book reminds me another story that I have read before, "American Dreamer".As Bharati Mukherjee says in “American Dreamer,” “I thought of myself as an expatriate Bengali permanently stranded in North America because of destiny or desire.” In the first ten year staying in Canada, Mukherjee, as an immigrant, had no sense of belonging. She felt like she was a stranger, and Canada, her husband’s country, was a temporary residence for her, or maybe she was just a traveler passing by.

The very first impression that the scene gives us is...
