Traveling to the United States From Asia, Part 1

This tongue-n-cheek post will look at the pleasures and obstacles one may encounter when traveling from Asia to the United States of America.
Traveling to the United States can be so much fun! What a huge and wonderful country to explore, especially if you’ve never been there before. You’ll be tempted to want to rent a car and travel all over America to see it all.
There is every type of climate and terrain in the United States of America, like the deserts of Arizona where temperatures can reach as high as 120 degrees Fahrenheit in the summertime, causing cars to overheat and bringing on a quick death due to dehydration for passengers who have forgotten to take large quantities of drinking water along with them.
At the top of Mount Washington in New Hampshire is where the highest land wind speeds and coldest temperatures on Earth have ever been recorded. Pour a glass of water and it will freeze before hitting the ground! Spend a few minutes outdoors and your entire body will become a solid ice cube!
For this reason it might be best not to drive all the way to the very top of Mount Washington. The scenery is still beautiful from half-way up where it is still warm enough outdoors to survive.
When the eagle spots its prey swimming just beneath the surface of the water, it pulls in its wings and dive bombs straight down, reaching speeds of over 200 miles per hour, then opens its wings at the last possible second and scoops up its prey in its sharply pointed beak in a surprise attack that show no mercy!
It has happened only rarely, but eagles have been known to carry away puppies, kittens and even human babies in this manner, so it might be best if you have young children to stay in your car when driving through the American west.
South Florida is so warm and sunny and beautiful. Every once in a while an alligator is known to come up out of the water and attack pets in the back yards of Florida residents. Alligators have also occasionally been spotted on the sidewalks of southern Florida towns and have been known to take up residence in neighborhood swimming pools.
For this reason, it might be best to stay in your car when driving through southern Florida, especially since carjacking by youthful criminal gangs is also on the rise.
The forests of northern Maine are among the most lush and scenic in the world. If you didn’t know better, you might think you were in Siberia! Just be careful, because in the summertime you can be assured of encountering the largest black flies you ever saw! These flies swarm in the millions and can produce nasty bites that can leave you scratching and itching for days.
You might remain most comfortable staying inside your car when driving though northern Maine where you can enjoy the scenery fly-free.
North Dakota is one of the most naturally scenic places on Earth, where the land and the sky seem to go on forever. The brown bears usually leave travelers alone, unless you accidentally get between a mother bear and her cubs, in which case you can only wish that she has recently eaten and is not hungry.
For this reason, you might want to stay in your car when driving through the badlands of North Dakota, and make sure to keep driving faster than bears can run.
The American eagle can be found in the high mountain areas of the western USA and is one of the world’s most magnificent and successful predators. The American bald eagle can spot a fish swimming just beneath the surface of the water from a cruising altitude as high as 10,000 feet in the air!
When the eagle spots its prey swimming just beneath the surface of the water, it pulls in its wings and dive bombs straight down, reaching speeds of over 200 miles per hour, then opens its wings at the last possible second and scoops up its prey in its sharply pointed beak in a surprise attack that show no mercy!

Now in part 2 we will cover getting around America and avoiding some less than ideal situations :)
