Day Nine

Today was very fun and I got to see more of the city. The morning was very relaxing because I had two frees and then the all school assemble where they performed a section from Fiddler On The Roof. I was very impressed because the singing, acting, and set were all amazing, especially for a high school production. This was very different from Bush play since we don’t do musicals. Then we had lunch followed by drama. They have a short play festival coming up so they had to work on that. Then we had history and chemistry.

In chemistry we did another fun lab that I got to be apart of! Then Toby had a meeting about her junior project and we took the train home. For dinner we went to the infamous Shake Shack, which isn’t in Washington so I was very excited to try it! It was amazing and I can’t wait to go back sometime. Then since Toby had a lot of work to do and a girl from GFS named Sophie didn’t have any she wanted to show me a little bit more of the city. Toby was totally on board with this plan since she didn’t want me to wait at home while she did work. When I arrived at Sophie’s she showed me around her house and then we decided to go walk around Philly. First we walked around south street which was very different from the rest of the city. Then we continued to walk around, eat frozen yogurt, look at stores, and she showed me some of the restaurants her dad owns. After walking around for a bit we saw that the Chinese Lantern Festival was going on so we decided to go in since it was only $10. It was very beautiful and I was amazed with all the lights. After seeing all the lights and lanterns we walked back to Sophie’s house and Toby picked me up.
