Wednesday, June 27th
Today has been busy. We had our final rehearsal today for our Olympic Journey. Rehearsal finished just after noon and now everyone has left to go finish packing.
We met at 11:45pm in front of Takena Hall. All aboard the bus...the journey to London, UK and the 2012 Summer Olympic Festivities has begun!
The five-hour bus ride to Seattle was a bit grueling. At first, we all fell asleep, then once we hit the bumpy roads of Takena we were all awake!!! \We arrived at SEA-TAC, our bus driver told us he was glad we all made it (it was the first time he had ever driven there!).
We checked in for the 8:00 am Air Canada Flight 540 to Toronto and then connecting to AC 856 to London Heathrow at 6:30pm. Two of the students took their first trip on a plane! What a way to make your first airplane trip! One student even called out… “We’re on our way to London”…as the choir cheered just after take-off! This is going to be a great experience!
