Got up at 6am to say goodbye to the early birds Lauren, Ilmer, Sean, Cedric, Guillaume and Jordi. Very sad to see them go and have to admit that I did go off and have a little cry before going back to bed. Woke up to the carnage or people trying to pack. Our dorm looked like a bomb had hit it, that or we'd been burgled! There was a bit of a rush when the taxis arrived and we piled in leaving Dan Miller waving us off all by himself - the last man standing at camp Pa-Qua-Tuck.
The train to Babylon was delayed but we got the connection to Penn station without any problems. Jazz, lil Dan, Amy and me went to the hostel via the subway whilst the others got a taxi as Ciara has a fear of the subway. The hostel, called "Jazz on Lenox" in Harlem, was pretty funky looking with its green and white walls and wooden floors.
Once we sorted ourselves out, we headed back into the city to meet up with Joy and grabbed breakfast on the way. We found her in the ESPN bar where we chatted and gossiped for an hour or so before going to Toys 'r' us and taking a ride on the ferris wheel. Tragically, we got the Fisher Price cart. We met Ciara and Julie, who had managed to loose Dan and Jason, and went back to Joys hotel room where we took over her bed leaving her to sit on a chair!
At 7.30pm we went back out to Hooters with a quick stop at the M&M store. We were the first to arrive followed closely by Blair. Then Dan and Jason, and Imelda who didn't want to leave at the end of then night because she had already had enough of her parents!! Later, Mick, Michael, Louise and Ruth came. Louise was ready to kill Ruth as she had taken them completely the wrong direction. Kerry had had to sense not to leave with them and left shortly after them but arrived first. Louises face was brilliant.
It was a good night. I came back early as I wasn't really in the mood. After saying goodbye to Blair and Wendy, we caught a cab back as Ciara, Jason, Dan and Julie were leaving for Orlando the next morning. Got back to the hostel and said another goodbye then went to my room prepared to go to sleep. Instead I met an australian guy called Jason who had done a camp in South Carolina. We stayed up for a few hours comparing camps and kids etc. It was the complete opposite to mine. He had rich Jewish kids who complained when they didn't get what they want. He wasn't impressed with them but enjoyed himself. Also sounds like they had a problem with bugs just as much as we did. The activities were much more exciting like hiking and camping over night then hiking back again, a nature centre and water skiing.
