DC is now just a colorful memory, and we move ever onward. Believe it or not, the schedule is just as full as ever, we just have to drive slower because the Northeast is rather populated. Monday can be divided into two separate halves: the part where we left my Aunt's house, and the section where we drove until
. However, it's worth mentioning that
Shane's girlfriend brought Tucson Tamale Company, and our last meal in
my Aunt's house was a taste from home. Newark
We left the bus at the Newark Charter School (NCS), which was the site of our next performance, and met up with an old student of my Dad's. He met us in the freezing
and we gave an impromptu presentation to his kids who weren't part of NCS. We
all carpooled back to their spot in a nice little neighborhood and dug in to an
unreal BBQ spread for dinner. I spent the rest of the evening attempting to
catch up on blogging posts, and soon found myself up far too late. I rubbed my
eyes to try to make the clock turn backwards, and upon failing, decided to turn
in for the night. Delaware
We did a couple of lightning fast shows at the school the next day. The folks we were staying with had lent us a car to get back to the school, and we pulled in with time to spare. Luckily, this extra time gave us the chance to figure out how we were supposed to boil down our show into about 25 minutes, because that was all the time NCS was giving us. Honestly, I liked the whole performance better, but it was a tad bit rushed. If we could figure out a way to still connect each separate demonstration, then we would have a real power-packed number.
Once the shows were all done, we hit the road for PA, and accomplished both of our goals for the rest of the day: we found somewhere to rest, and we sniffed the air in
The air wasn't that delicious, but it's nice to be under the roof of another
road trip veteran. Hershey, PA.
We finally found something else we can pass on the road: a horse and buggy. That's right, today we crossed through Amish country!
