It was smooth sailing from Newark to Venice. In fact, Mr. Metallo said we might be the easiest group he's ever toured with in his x-years of teaching. We'll take it!
Most girls slept through the flight to rest up for our arrival to Italy. We ate a lot of plane and airport food, so we were thrilled when Kathie, our tour guide, had our bus driver stop at a road stop where the girls enjoyed espresso, chocolate wafers and "the best nectarines I've ever had"-every girl who ate a nectarine.
We arrived in Ravenna with enough time to check into our hostel and freshen up for dinner. We walked all of two blocks to our dining destination, but it's a beautiful 2 blocks! We enjoyed a 4 course meal which I think set us up for a good night's sleep.
We're looking forward to our performance in the Ravenna Festival tomorrow- our first concert in Italy!
