Day 3
We checked out of the hotel and proceeded
straight to the Staton Island ferry. Checked out
the gift shop while waiting to board. I bought a
present for a friend, Stephen; it was his
birthday that day. I still need to give it to him.
Anyway, we boarded and I took a picture
of the city from the ferry. But I won't post
it since it isn't that spectacular. But I saw
the Statue of Liberty and I had this moment
of .. I don't know. I just had a bit of a
realization from an immigrant's point of view;
how that's the first thing alot of them saw
upon reading America. However, I didn't
get to see Ellis Island. We were supposed
to actually GO to Ellis Island and see all
of the names of people that have traveled
to the country. My great grandfather's name
is somewhere on the wall of engraved names.

After we got back to the area where the bus
was parked, we got an hour for lunch and
shopping. I got really upset and went to
the bus and slept. I was just so tired of
being sick, and the walking was just too
much to handle with my deteriorating
health. Blah. I was running a fever, so I
just went to sleep. Ben brought me a big
pretzel. Took me forever to eat it cause I
felt like shit. Ah well. After everyone was
back on the bus, we headed for home.
The bus ride was interesting; Ryan stole
the intercom thing from Penegar and started
pointing out road signs and random shit
like he knew what he was doing. lol. We
took a small detour through D.C. and we
were able to see the Capital building
and the Washington monument. At
around 10:30, we stopped and scavanged
for dinner. I went to Subway and beasted
the hell out of a footlong. Hee. The bus
finally reached the school at nearly
2am. Then I made my way over to Alex's
house. We left for Georgia around 8am,
so I didn't even sleep. We were
SUPPOSED to leave at 5 apparently. So
it was POSSIBLE for me to catch a
couple of hours. But I didn't. I slept
almost the whole way to Georgia.
But I'll save that for another blog.
