Our kid got back from his 5 day Pacific Adventure & it sounds as though he had a really good time! I'm so relieved, esp. since I had a nightmare of him falling down a cliff. Actually come to think of it, that was me falling down the cliff. Anyway, it was a very scary nightmare, but Youngest Son is fine and in fact was one of the minority of kids who actually scaled one of the cliffs. There were only 16 kids, all boys, most of them from the rugby team who had gotten demerits for drinking or something and so couldn't leave Hong Kong, hahaha. Of course they were on a rugged island so it really wasn't much like being in Hong Kong. This is a picture of our son, taken by one of the other kids who had brought a camera. Our kid would not bring a camera because, "only girls bring cameras and take pictures of each other, Mom." In retrospect I did get him to admit it would have been nice having a camera.
The people who ran the program said these 16 boys ate 40 people worth of food for those 5 days!
