Buffalos and Waterfalls

July 30, 2013

Today was our last full day of the tour! We woke up at 5:30 and were on the road to Buffalo, NY by 7:00am.  We drove through 3 states by 9:00am!! I slept through all of Pennsylvania, but from what I hear from my tour mates, it was wonderful.

When we arrived in Buffalo we went to a cute little coffee shop. Pretty sure the tour team has drank more coffee in these 12 days than we ever have in our lives. After a short bit we headed to The Gow School, an awesome all LD school for 7-12th grade boys. The boarding school is absolutely beautiful and filled with some much energy. Emma and I gave our Think Different Diplomat presentation to campers all who have LDs/ADHD. It was incredibly empowering being with these kids and sharing our experiences with them. The Gow School felt a little bit like the Organizing Institute—full of LD pride and a common understanding. After the presentation we had a wonderful conversation with a faculty member over coffee. One of our favorite things on this tour is having conversations like this and hearing about others experiences.

On our way to Massachusetts (our lodging for the night) we made a quick detour to Niagara Falls. It was INCREDIBLE! Definitely beats the largest wooden nickel from Iowa…We stood in the mist (more like gallons of water pouring down on us) and soaked in the beauty of the falls. Such a beautiful final moment before we reach our final destination tomorrow.

It’s so surreal that the tour is reaching the finish line tomorrow. We are off early in the morning to get to Brown University for the Young Leader’s Organizing Institute. We have loved our time on the road and are excited to share the LD joy over the next week at the conference.
