Maya's New York Adventure!

We recently went to New York! It was really exciting! We met some really nice people! Plus we went to The Museum of Modern Art and saw a famous painting by one of my favorite artists: Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh! I recognized it right away and wanted to take a picture next to it. My favorite quote is: "I dream what I paint and I paint what I dream".~Vincent Van Gogh.
