We have all arrived safely home from Canada and have enjoyed our time back in the states (hence the late writing of this last post). We started off yesterday (3/7) with heartfelt good-byes at Sherman House. The members and assistants were so kind to us throughout the week and we appreciated every bit of it. We set off for home and stopped at the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, which was exciting as most of group had never been to the Falls before. We took lots of pictures and enjoyed the view of America, which we had missed. The group shopped until they dropped at the souvenir store, too.
Then, we stopped in Buffalo for poutine, as we heard it was a Canadian favorite and had not yet had the chance to get it while over there. We found a place called Poutine and Cream, which had delicious burgers, poutine, and crazy milkshakes. As a group, we tried traditional poutine (French fries with gravy and cheese cords over top it), general Tao chicken over poutine, and BBQ pulled pork over poutine. We were stuffed with food and happiness as we headed home.
Overall, our group meshed greatly and shared many wonderful moments throughout the week. The dynamic as a whole could not have been better and we appreciate all of the assistance from our two facilitators, Brent and Megan. The week truly was beautiful and will be cherished forever.
