Last day in Virginia! I'm sad to see it end, but I'm excited to be home. First off, we go down to breakfast in the lobby like normal with our group. After that, we headed to Williamsburg, Virginia. There, we had a colonial Williamsburg tour. It was the most humid weather I have ever been in! The tour was mainly outside, unfortunately, and lasted for about 3 hours. The guy that did our tour guided us to some barns, churches, and the outside general area. My group and I stopped at a woman who was making pottery and a vase was in the process. She talked to us about how back then women were really into creating things with clay and used them to cook, clean, and fetch water. It was really interesting talking to her because she was one of the people in this town that has kept the heritage and traditions constant and the same. We then went inside to a gift shop and a little museum. Still very interesting and not quite as hot. Then after the tour, we ate some lunch at this place called Retros. It was amazing! I got a burger, some fries, and a shake and it was delicious. We had some shopping time after that so we went into a couple gift shops. I didn't buy anything, but a lot of my friends did. After we said our goodbyes, we finally got to the fun part which was Busch Gardens! It was a fifteen minute drive to there so in the meantime I applied some sunscreen and left my backpack on the bus. This amusement park is mapped out by different parts of Europe and USA. There was a France, Italy, USA, and much more parts to this whole outline. I absolutely love roller coasters, so when I learned that we were going here I was so overjoyed. I rode every ride there and even some of the spinny ones which I hate. I think my favorite ride was the water ride, Escape from Pompeii. It's extremely hot at first, but then you go down this huge hill into water and you get soaked! It was so fun and my small group and I toed it 4 times in a row. We got some dinner and stayed there until it closed, which was 9. After that, we went to our hotel, swam, showered, and headed for bed. I experienced some new traditions and customs in Williamsburg, especially on the tour. In norman, we don't really have any torus or anything for that matter and it's really neat to see that other places do. The people were extremely nice and there were a lot more cars and less people, like in norman. However, we do not have the tours they do but some similarities, like people driving, I would imagine. I muted Virginia has a lot more homey atmosphere to it compared to New York or Washington, D.C., which is similar to Oklahoma. Our tour director, at colonial Williamsburg, was very informative and knew what he was doing. He told us a lot about the history here and why it's significant today. I don't think our tour would've been the same without him bute was sweaty just like the rest of us too. This travel will definitely influence my life because of historic information supplied here everywhere you looked. It's really cool to see how the town has kept the history siginificant to today's events because we don't see that much here in Oklahoma. With people dressing up to acting out events, everything is very interesting to me and I will use that information in the future.
