Go Perseverance!! That is so cool! The derailed train is crazy. I wonder if someone made it happen or if it was an accident. For everyones sake I hope it was the second! That is totally crazy about school supplies. Wow. That museum was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!! The outside, inside, everything! I wonder how old the building is. That must be a pretty hard job cleaning the animals. And it would be fun to stay in that hotel!!


Yes!!! Go Perseverance!

Can someone tell me what

Can someone tell me what happened please?

@ Kiara

Do you mean in the video?

I'm glad no one was injured

I'm glad no one was injured from the train derailing. If I was going to stay at that hotel I think I'd pick a room with a manatee not a tiger or wolf.


Yes please.

@ Kiara

Uh...let's see...they finally launched the river Perseverance to Mars after a bunch of delays.
A train in some big city--it might have been Seattle?--caught on fire in a bridge, collapsing with the bridge. Luckily no one was hurt. They haven't figured out why yet.
And the Museum of Natural History in London has apparently been closed for a while cause of COVID, so they're opening back up, but first they have to dust all the displays, like the whale skeleton.
It also talked about these hotels at some resort, I forget where, that in every room has a big window long into the habitat of a certain animal, like manatees or tigers or wolves.
There was also something about school supplies, how a lot of people are shopping online, and how this is the biggest shopping season except for the holidays.
I hope that made sense. But just wondering, can't you watch the video?

Oops sorry shoulda checked my spelling

Rover not river
Looking not long into the habitats


Thank you! Also I can't watch the video but my mom said it's probably some setting.

@ Kiara

Some setting? Sorry, I don't know what you mean :-)


Oh sorry! Guess I should have been more clear! ;-) So like some setting on my device might be not allowing me to watch it (safety reasons I think).


Also what does KN mean? You don't have to tell me.;-)

@ Kiara

Well, my first name is Kara. I probably shouldn't tell you my last name though ;-) When I first came on WORLDteen, my screen na!e was Kara N, but my mom changed it.


Oh sorry name not na!e
The ! is right next to the M on my Kindle Fire screen.


Our names are so similar!!!! And I have a Kindle fire too! I like your name! ;-) :-) ;-) :-) ;-) :-) ;-) :-) ;-) :-)

@ Kiara

Your name is pronounced Key-ahr-a though right? My name's pronounced Kare-uh. But yeah! So similar! And I really like your name too. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)


Actually it's pronounced Key-air-uh. My parents liked that version better. But lots of people pronounce it like you said and that's fine. I usually just let them know what you say it.;-) :-) ;-) :-)


a not uh.

@ Kiara

Ok, cool! Lots of people think my name is pronounced Karr-uh, or think it's spelled with a C. So I know exactly what you're talking about!
