Today was an extremely exciting day. We started off the morning at El Cerrito High School, arriving around 3:15 to receive loaner items and to weigh our luggage. Our heavy suitcases were stuffed into the shuttle. We took a group shot, got into the shuttle, and we set off for the Oakland airport.
The airplane rides were uncomfortable, but everyone was filled with excitement to finally start our journey. On the plane, everyone used their time wisely. Ms. Larson slept, Erin read a book, Andrew watched a movie, Erinn read a book, I did summer homework, and Kathleen kept herself away in my blind spot.
When we finally arrived at Providence, we jolted to the hotel and got together to eat dinner. We ate at Local 121, a restaurant that only uses local ingredients in their food. Our dinner was relaxing, and a good way to wind down from the long day. We exchanged intellectual conversation and went over our plans for the rest of the trip.
In the end, we all decided to regress to our hotel rooms to hibernate.
We're all very eager to visit colleges this next week, and exuberant to be in the Ocean State.
