First off, the boys have been very well behaved. Starting in Oakland, the security agent said that the boys were a very good group. The flight crew also said that our group were good passengers. When we arrived in Virginia, it was hot and muggy. Quite tropical but without the sunshine. We were greeted by our wonderful hosts which were coordinated by the Vaziranis. We found it hard to sleep because of the loss of 3 hours and the weather, but we had a great day today. We started by singing mass at St. Bernadette's in Silver Spring. Then we travelled to the John Paul II Cultural Center which was very interesting! Following a ride through "The District", we toured the World War II memorial, and took a picture in front of the Washington Monument. Guided by our History Liaison - political intern and alumnus, Kevin Young, we learned about the layout of the city which, we learned, branches outward from the capitol building. So, the boys should be able to tell you how many blocks 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is from the capitol... The SHOULD be able to. Finally, we arrived back at St. Bernadette's where we were treated to pizza and then performed a concert. The audience was very appreciative and the boys received a standing ovation! It was good practice for the Kennedy Center tomorrow! We will be exploring the capitol some more before performing on their Millennium Stage which hosts performances 365 days a year.
