Brazilian friends in USA

My 2 brazilian friends, Déa and Karina, visited the United States last month. Déa went to Florida with a friend on a magic visit to Disney World and Universal Orlando theme parks. Karina went on a romantic trip with her husband to New York.

 The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a themed area spanning two theme parks in the Universal Orlando Resort in Orlando, Florida. The 20-acre area includes attractions, restaurants, and shops themed around a recreation of Hogwarts Castle and Hogsmeade Village. 
The Wizarding World includes attractions pertaining to adventures in the film and book series, and shops where "wizard lore" is sold including a replication of Ollivander's wand shop. Since its opening on June 18th, 2010, the area has proved very popular with guests, increasing park attendance by over 50%. - in: http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/The_Wizarding_World_of_Harry_Potter

New York skyline with the Empire State Building.
More than any other building in the world, the Empire State Building represents the ambition of humans to build towers that reach for the skies. The skyscraper is probably New York's best known building and can be seen on many postcards.
The Empire State Building also features in many films, most notably the classic film 'King Kong' from 1933. Even today, though the building has been stripped from its title of the world's tallest building, it is a symbol of New York itself, visited by more than three million people each year. - in: http://www.aviewoncities.com/nyc/empirestate.htm
