America's Pastime

Photojournalist of the Day: Tawatchai J. (Thailand)

Today, although there were not many activities like the previous days, I had a lot of fun. I experienced live baseball match for the first time and it was one of the best experiences of my life! I was a little sad because our home team, the Chicago White Sox, didn't win but it will still be good memory forever.

When we first arrived to the U.S. I was very excited because it was my first time in this country. I was, however, also worried about a few things, especially not being able to speak English fluently. Today pushed me to practice my English skills more and to realize that if we try to learn more, it won't as difficult or nerve-wracking.
