Dimond Exchange Student Shares California Choir Trip Memories

The California trip was an intensive experience that I loved.

We left Anchorage Monday, April 23, at 11:40 p.m, and we arrived in Los Angeles at 5:30 a.m Tuesday.  

The first thing that we did was the exchange with the choirs of Mira Copa High School in a Church.

If I must be honest, we sang pretty badly. All our choirs were tired from the flight on the plane.

This was a fantastic experience anyway because the other’s choir was really good, so I really enjoyed listing.

After this exchange, we moved in Portland for lunch. The sun was amazing but it was really windy. We ate on the beach and we played with the group.

After lunch, we went to the hotel, and after that, another bunch of people and I decided to go with our teacher Miss G. to Disneyland for some shopping.

For dinner we went to do the medieval dinner experience.

I enjoyed the food and some shows, but I did not agree with the way one man treated the horses. I was and still I am really disappointed.

I saw abuses of horse in front people, as it this was normal. I am still upset about it.

The second day, Wednesday April 24, we went to Disneyland and California Adventure Park. I did a lot of adrenaline ride in California adventure park with with my friend, and at 3 p.m we met with all choirs in Disneyland, at Mickey Mouse downtown and we did a workshop about registration of the voice and music for Disney song. I really learn a lot and I had a lot of fun.

After the workshop we stayed at Disney until 10 p.m and we can back to the hotel for go to sleep.

On Thursday we went in the Disneyland at 7:30 a.m, and I did some rides there.

At 11 a.m we met in California Adventure Park for our concert. We sang pretty well and I am proud about that concert.  

After the concert we stayed at the California Adventure Park and I went with my friend to watching the musical “ Frozen” .

We came back to the hotel at 10 p.m.

On friday, we left the hotel at 6:50 a.m and went to the Universal Studio, Hollywood.

Our performance  was at 10 a.m and we did pretty well.

After our concert my friend and I went to some attractions, like the “ Horror Zombie House” and we were really scared.  After we did a tour at the cast and we went at some shows about special effects and how pets are trained for the movies.

We left the Universal studio at 7:00 p.m;  and we went to the airport.

Our flight was at 11: 55 p.m. We arrived at Anchorage at 4:30 a.m.

This trip for me was the best part of this year, I had a lot of fun, hot weather and my friends were all together.
