Travel to New York.

My friends and I decided to go to New York during the summer by carpooling with a stranger.

Choice 1 : The stranger was carrying cocaine in the trunk of the car. Arriving at the customs, the police searched the car and found 5 kg of cocaine in my suitcase. They arrested us all three and accused of drug trafficking. We were taken to a US prison. I was the main accused, but the drug did not belong to me, and I do not know how she got into my bag. I called my father's lawyer who traveled to New York to defend me. He ordered cocaine to be taken from our hands. Only the hands of the man have been tested positive, and he has already been arrested for sexual harassment and marijuana trafficking in Canada. My friends and I were released two weeks later. I learned a great lesson from this trip to hell. Life in prison is though and I don't want to go back.

Choice 2 : The stranger was a beautiful American who came to Quebec because of his work. He started talking to one of my friends who was sitting next to him. My friend seemed to like him. He volunteered to guide us in New York and we accepted. When we arrived at the hotel where we were staying, my friend invited him for a drink at the bar so he could get to know each other better, then it was flirting. They started to kiss each other. The guy wanted to go up to her room, she refused, the guy was insisting on holding her tight against her. She pushed it and called security. He apologized for his misconduct and left. We have not heard from him since that day. My friend is more cautious since this sad story, a chance she was not alone.
