I still will never understand how I can be less tired at 2:30 in the morning, than when I wake up for school hours later any other day. We woke up and carpooled with the Millers to SFO, arriving at the airport around 4 AM.

Security and check-in was a breeze, especially since all we had was carry-on luggage. Since airport prices are sky-high, we snacked on strawberries and blueberry muffins from home. Sadly, Erin and Mrs. Miller flew a different airline, so we could not hang out together. However, I did manage to snag a picture with Iron Chef Cat Cora from the Food Network, so all was not lost.
We were in the back of the plane, but it didn’t really matter since we slept the entire way. Although the Adventure of Tin-Tin was playing on the monitors, I knew that sleep was a little more important.

On that flight, I discovered that my camera had broken! The lens is jammed and refuses to turn on for me. RIP Camera. Thankfully my mom brought her camera, although I do not know how to use this fancy-schmancy contraption (neither does she). Oh well. Point and shoot.

Our flight from Chicago was on a teeny tiny jet, only three seats wide. It was so small, many people’s carry-on luggage was deemed too big and had to be stored on the bottom of the plane. This shaky flight was full of dips that did not bode too well for my stomach. So I slept.

We ran into the Millers at the car rental and split up shortly after to our separate hotels. Getting used to the new car was a little shaky for my mom, especially in a new setting. After an unintentional tour of the city we finally reached our hotel.

My mom had asked the car rental employees about a good place to eat in Syracuse. They suggested Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, which is a famous restaurant, blues venue, and biker bar chain, featured on the TV show Man v. Food. The food was absolutely delicious.

The rain finally began, and the plan to walk around campus turned into a plan to drive around the campus. The campus is BEAUTIFUL! The old buildings, the main green, the brick style and everything else just looked amazing, even at nighttime. I am excited for the tour tomorrow.
