And then strep throat. :/ But will start with NYC because it's much more interesting. :)
The PCA band left for NYC on Saturday 2 o'clock. We travelled on a bus for 16.5 hours which put us at the hotel at about 6:30. You should have seen us, we were like a bunch of zombies. We were (thankfully) forced to sleep (or at least be quiet) at 11, but sleeping on a bus means you mean get a couple of hours because it's not the most comfortable thing in the world. haha. So, yeah. It took me 2 hours to wake. My boyfriend was funny, he'd walk over to me ever 30 mins or so and say, "Are you awake yet?" Usually my answer was no and he'd walk away and come back later. haha. He's quite a morning person.
So after we had breakfast at the hotel and changed from our comfy clothes to our day clothes we got back on the bus and headed toward Ellis Island on a fairy (very cold). The museum there was amazing. I would highly recommend it if you ever go up there. It was interesting and sad to see how the immigrants we treated and learning all that went on there.
Then, we got back on the boat to go meet Lady Liberty. We didn't go up in the statue, but it was so incredible to actually SEE it so close!! After we were done there we headed back to NYC off the boat! (so cold on the boat, except in the covered part. haha) Then we were able to split up into groups and walk around for a little while. That was fun too. :) That's a basic summer of the first day, Thursday.
I need to go do make up work (since I'm not in school), but I will finish typing this later!! :)
