(Note to self: Try to avoid ending every blog post title with an exclamation point!)
Greetings from Dallas / Ft. Worth International Airport. A bit early on our journey for a blog update, I agree, but I have no idea when we will next have reliable Internet access. So I figured I’d take this opportunity to let everyone know that we all departed successfully. We met at the Simon Center at 4AM. The setting was appropriate, about 8 degrees with snow piled high:
No one will be sad to trade that weather for the weather in Belize (currently: 72F). Thank you to Mark Mitch and Maria Colby of New England College for volunteering to be van drivers to/from Logan. We met some additional students there, checked all our bags, negotiated security (everything takes a long time when you have a group of 18!) and made it to our gate as boarding was underway. Our seats were scattered throughout the plane, but some were together:
After a 4.5 hour flight, we landed in Dallas. We have about an hour break before the 3 hour flight to Belize. We’re all very psyched to be off!
Hopefully I can update the blog soon from Belize, but I don’t actually know the Internet situation down there. Until then, thanks for reading and for supporting NECBelize!
