Entry Description

America, the land of infinte opportunites, where rivers of milk and honey flow through the lands – these kinds of sweet promises had already attracted the first European settlers. Even nowadays, countless travelers and imigrants are drawn to the promises of the American dream. Since 2013 I traveled many times through the southwestern states of America, having one question in mind: If the myth of „the American way of life“ is still present today, and if so, what its real content is.
