Hello guys! It is day 1 in Canada, and I am in Edmonton writing to you guys right now, our first flight was around 6:00 a.m. to Minneapolis. After that, we had 4 hours to spare, so we went to Chick-fil-a for breakfast since I only had half a cinnamon bun before we left for the airport. At Chick-fil-a, I had the spicy chicken sandwich with super sour lemonade and small hash brown bites. The sandwich was pretty good, because it had a thick, fluffy, and buttery biscuit (bun)! We were planning on heading to the Mall of America, but it was too far and we didn’t have time to go there. We just decided to explore around the airport, there were quite a few kiosks and gifts shops there! Apparently, the airplane was “overbooked,” so we had to wait for someone to give up their seats. Luckily, some generous people gave up enough seats and we were soon on our 4-hour flight! I think it was the smoothest landing I had ever experienced! Afterwards, we went to my grandparent’s house with some of my cousins, aunts, and uncles. When the rest of our cousins arrived, we went to a place called Golden Rice Bowl to celebrate my grandma’s birthday! They had some good foods like creamy lobster, spicy crab, walnut chicken, and more! Afterwards, our cousins took us to go out to bubble tea, where I tried mango green tea. The place was called Coco, and there was a really cool layout! We headed back to our grandparents house and ate a really good taro cake! We just stayed up until 1:00, talking all day, so that is why i’m posting this today.
