Wednesday, August 13
All arrived safely and got to bed around 11:30pm (5:30am UK time) after a long journey!!! 23 hours!!!!!!!!! [see D.B. below]....
All OK today though and looking forward to the first concert in Bethlehem this evening. The hotel is very nice and spacious with HUGE beds; breakfast was lovely with many options including scrambled egg, which I love, pancakes, which I love, bacon - crispy and American style, which I love. Rooms have TV, microwave, coffee makers, irons, fridge, loads of things and we can call using the 'phone from room-to-room. After breakfast we had our first time with the Rector talking about our journey so far, and a meeting with Mr Dunleavy when we sorted our numbers so that we can be counted on and off the coach quickly - I'm 13, but not unlucky. Then room inspections with the Rector and Fr. Kentigern-Fox, and then the big sort out of music and robes. My Cassock still fits even after the big breakfast.
