1: Trip with Chip
2: 1800's | Trip with | Chip | a | By: Claudia Cruz and Karia Diez
3: Hello. I am Chip. Mum says today we are going to go to America; her dream land. | There are 3 reasons we are leaving: | -Crop Failures -Mi Mum lost her job -Religious Freedom | Mi Mum says it would be like heaven on earth!
4: The Trip | Hello again, it's me Chip. The large boat we are on its not what I thought it would be. There must be about hundreds of people down here. It stinks and I am quite hungry. I wont tell me Mum, I con't dare to see her sad. It'll be ok. Once we get there I'll find some eats.
5: We are here | ~Chip here. We finally go here but don't know what is going to Diary. We have literally been at the "Golden Door" for 2 days and still haven't been able to get out. Oh wait we are leaving now! Mi Mum told me to keep my head up, look strong, and to no cough. I don't know why but I will listen to mi Mum. Wish us luck!
6: We are here diary: New York. The ladies with all white clothes let mi Mum and I go without stopping us. Mum said we are so lucky they didn't stop us on the way. I am so glad I listened to her every word. I realized what was really happening in Ellis Island; they were looking for sick and unfit people from the boat. But we made it all cos of mi Mum. I love her. She is my hero.
7: on top of | Diary, its me Chip. Before we part I would just want you to know how I am living here in America. Well, I live with all the other jews from England. We sort of stick together. Plus those Americans con't mess with us! Mum and I live in a small room shared with 6 others. I know times may be hard now while we work our way up. But my heart knows America is full of opportunity, freedom and hope. I will one day study in the medical field. MiMum will be proud. I owe it to her. | Thanks for going through this with me, Bestfriend- | -CHIP
