What a looooooonnnnng adventure i had yesterday!!! Well it all started waking up at hmmm around 6am and taking a shower then heading to meet the bus to take the 4 hour drive to St. Michel. I had forgotten how uncomfortable rinding on a bus is for that amount of time. Then the fun begins; when we stopped at the johnsss the other bus had a flat. Minimal problem. Then we proceeded to leave and uhhh about 20 minutes later the other bus got PULLED over. Great huh! They had a flat tire. So we left and continued on our way and the about 45 minutes later we pulled over to what i thought was to wait for the other bus. It was actually because there was something wrong with our power steering. We didn't learn about this for a good hour. Then while we were waiting i saw this little blue car stop and then reverse. So i was like laura look to see y they had pulled over and thennnnnnn all of the sudden you see a women holding her probably 2 or 3 year old so that they can take a dump on the side of the road. Pretty sweet huh? So then while we were waiting to find out what was going on i fell asleep and missed the explaining and when i woke up Marija told me that the other bus had left to take the other kids to St. Malo and that we were stuck here until the bus with the other kids dropped them off and came and got us. The power steering was not working and we needed another bus. So we then proceeded to wait another hour till bus came back and got us. We arrived at St. Malo at 6:45 and we were to be back at the bus at 7:30. Well when we got to the buses there was only one. The bus that got pulled over but not our bus. So that bus left and we sat in the parking lot waiting for our bus and nothing came. we looked homeless. The leader of the group, mustache lady, called the bus company again and this is when i first witnessed a very very very mad french lady. She was a yellin, never really want to see that again haha. So she got off the phone and we waited some more. Finally we got news at around 9:30 that the bus would be here at 11:30 and to be back. SO you know us crazy students rushed to the bars and started to ya know. We got to this little bar called la belle epoque. Laura, Marija, and I sat at a table and got a menu and looked at our choses. I had to use the restroom and while i was in there. Another group from the trip was in the bar and had asked if we wanted to join them. Of course we did. THere was a total of about 13 people, let me say that the ppl that we joined we mostly all korean and a russian and they were not from the US except one, sat at 2 tables. So we went through names and what we were doing and where we were all from. Some how the idea of drinking games came up. None of the other ppl except for me laura and marija had ever played a drinking game. I asked them if they wanted to play and they all agreed. So we whipped out our deck of cards and i proceeded to teach them how to play "Circle of death" or some ppl call it "Kings." Anyways, it was a blast. Everyone was having a great time and we met new friends!!! Hopefully they will pass on the game and play with others! So it came to be time to go back to the bus and we all got there and finally the bus came!! Wahooooo! The bus ride was even worse this time. Every seat was filled and it was really hot cause we sat in the last row with a full row of 5 seats. It had ended up some of our new friends sitting by us and we chatted and what not. Then the bus pulls over on the side of the road and i thought great there is another problem with another bus. But it we had stopped cause the bus driver needed to take a leak. Many of us had to go and started to head out to go also. But the mustache lady was like no we are going to stop in like 40 minutes. So after consuming some beverages..... we all realllly had to go. Finally we arrived at a rest stop and we went to go instead and it was closed. So we all decided to go in the bushes. While i was going the bus driver appeared from around the corner and i waved for him to go away. He did but then he came back and walked down the street. Whateve, i think he was just looking for some place to go pee. After we all sprinted out of the bushes and back to the bus, we were on our way. The bus ride was horrible it was hot and i couldn't breathe and it felt like i was going to puke. Finally they turned on the air. I felt better after that. We arrived back in Tours at like 4:00am and we had to walk to our place. Owhh man was i soooo happy to get into my bed. I crashed as soon as my head hit the pillow. The best part was that i slept till 2 in the afternoon today!!!! What a adventurous day.
