My cohort and I arrived at our first destination today--Boston, Massachusetts. We arrived early at El Cerrito High School to have our luggage weighed, receive luggage tags, and get information on how the flight process was supposed to work. In a few minutes after we got together and took a group picture, and boarded a charter bus to SFO.
When we got to our Virgin Airlines terminal, we immediately got into a lengthy line to have our bags weighed. Thankfully, my luggage wasn't too heavy and it didn't exceed the 50 lbs limit and after waiting a while, we got all of the cohort's luggage checked and we moved through airport security. Since we arrived so early at El Cerrito High, nobody had time to eat breakfast and most of us ended up eating at a small cafe near our plane's gate.
We boarded our plane and found our seats all the way in the back of the plane which was a bit upsetting because we were right next to bathroom and whenever anything happened back there, I noticed instantly. After the flight was over, we all took our baggage and met a chauffeur at the baggage claim area. Our chauffeur had us split up into two groups with me, Emily, and Monica in a minivan. I tried to ask our driver about good places to eat, but sadly, all he could come up with was Burger King.
Today was really busy, but I still can't wait for tomorrow when we have a dinner with Harvard graduates and visit MIT and Harvard.
