We arrived at the Seneca Hotel at about 8:15pm tonight. By the time we got all the keys distributed, and our luggage picked out (how many black suitcases must there be in the world?), it was about 8:30pm.
Despite lots of naps on the way up, we have rebounded with a great deal of energy. We had an all-trip meeting in my room tonight and played an icebreaker that involved us finding the connections we have with one another. Out of this entire group of 22, we have lots of things in common.
We talked a bit about hotel ettiquette and reviewed the schedule for tomorrow. We're headed to the Field Museum first thing, then to The Second City for a theatre performance, and we'll end the day at Navy Pier. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, and I gave out quite a few ponchos tonight.
Right now the students are crammed into the suite, playing card games and Apples to Apples.
