Ahhh, the time of year has come again. Choir tour. This year we decided to trek to Philadelphia and New York! Day one was filled with bus rides and rest stops. It was basically another 13 hour day on the road. Apparently Boone and I are getting good at those. Not too many exciting things happened that day. Except we did travel through Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, and Philadelphia! And we came across the oldest metal bridge in Virginia.
The next day, we woke up and sang in the hottest church in Philadelphia. Also the oldest Methodist church in the country. No air conditioning made it quite a miserable experience but the sermon was informational and directed at us Church Street visitors which was very neat.
After church, we went on a duck tour which contrary to popular belief is not a tour of the ducks of Philadelphia. It’s actually a boat bus. An amphibious vehicle of sorts. You’re welcome. I know you we’re curious.
After the duck tour, they dropped us off at a Philly Cheesesteak place and I crossed off one of my 26 Things To Do Before 27 (which I will publish soon!) — eat a Philly Cheesesteak in Philadelphia. After lunch, we headed over to the Betsy Ross house. The following picture, as confusing as it may be, is not of Betsy Ross. Nor is it even an employee of the Betsy Ross house. You figure it out…I’m still confused.
After the Betsy Ross experience, we left downtown Philadelphia and came back to Eastern University where we are staying to a disappointing dinner in the dining hall. Boone, Alex, Eric, and I decided to go on a nature walk! We saw so many animals! Like this frog!
The next day was a fun-filled day of history! We went to the liberty bell and independence hall and we ate at the Bourse.
I also went to my first Major League Baseball! Boone and I stood behind center field the whole time!
And the Phillys won! So that was even more exciting!
The choir tour is halfway over folks. But never fear, the next post is near!
Until next time, fellow BFs.
