we couldn't let a single day go to waste while we were in California, so on Sunday we visited china town. the little shops were all so cute! there were about 15 shops lining the street and we walked in and out of shops picking up little souvenirs. little Buddha's, rings, and Chinese coins
i actually thought there is only a china town in NYC, but i guess there is 2 in California! pretty cool to visit my very first one! and not only did we enjoy the shops, but we spent $30 on all you can eat sushi! yes, it was the sabbath, but we had to eat. and all you can eat sushi for our only meal that day was absolutely delicious!
monday morning our flight was at 7:45, so we thought. we left the house at 6, the airport was an hour away. unfortunately we missed our flight since it was at 7:28. the sad thing was, we HAD to make it back to school. it was the last day of the semester and we all had assignments to turn in + tests to take.
we talked to the flight attendant about getting on another flight, and to our luck, ALL flights were full for monday. she managed to squeeze 3 of us on, and Branson would go standby. the flight was at 10:15 but delayed to 11:30. we sat in the airport playing card games + eating the last of our snacks until 10:30 rolled around and they announced "the 4770 flight to SLC for 11:30 has been canceled."
the took a taxi to Orange County, and by this point, it was way fun :) stranded in an airport, what are those teachers going to do about that? we made it on the 1:30 flight and we were super happy to get home by then! quite the day in the airport :)
i like being spontaneous, but sometimes i am not very good at it. let's just say this is one of the most spontaneous things i have ever done and i had the time of my life! it was quite the adventure!
annnnnnddd i love my best friends :)
