Nine Eleven

We came to America on September 1999. Or friend’s picked up us from JFK… We went to live with them in Bernardsville, New Jersey… They lived in an apartment in front of an old train station… So next day, we asked if that train would take us to Manhattan. Our friends were afraid of us getting lost, but we took the train, anxious on getting to know  the most “cosmopolitan” city in the world only 45 minutes away… Once in Hoboken, we took the ferry heading right to the Twin Towers… It was a gorgeous day… And as we got closer to the TT we were amazed by it’s size… Believe us when we say, everybody abroad knew about the Twin Towers, that gave a special meaning to the city. These photos were taken that special day for us…Two years later, on 9/11, we went to work, where we were told about a plane hitting one of the Twin Towers… It was something unthinkable to happen in anyone’s mind, but it did… A huge feeling of hopeless and sadness invaded us… A day we will never forget…
