During the summer, I went to the Sunset Park Pool. It is big. It is fresh. At the pool you can learn how to swim and you can race with others. You can get your own locker, but you have to bring a lock. It is fun in Sunset Park Pool.

Vacation Destination: Visit Morocco

by Manal

It’s the most fun and the best country ever! Let me tell you why. First of all there is this big castle where queens and kings of Morocco used to live. This castle is located high in the mountains in a city where I live, called Bnimlal. Many visitors from all over the world visit this wonderful castle.
There are many more places to visit. But my favorite Bnimilal. I live in a tiny town there and next to it is the big city. There are huge malls, buildings, and a lot of ice cream shops for kids. I have lived in Morocco since I was born. There the summers are hot so you can enjoy the really fun pools. Morocco is a great place! I hope that if you go there.  You will love it too!
