Other than the final performance we did this storytelling-around-the-fire thing on the 1st night and a dance on the 2nd. Remember how I said that I was worried about host housing? Well, I had no reason to be worried. The people that hosted me were wonderful. :) They were so nice. They took us to the beach on our 1st night. I was also roomed with a fellow JISian who was in the grade above be and I didn't know well. But now I do, she really cool and I'm glad I got to know her. Out host school was called Hale. I love how much focus they put on the arts. I wish more schools were like that. The kids from the other schools were cool as well. I met some people from Bangkok who were coolio :) Some of the kids from my ensemble were awesome (I know how much I'm over using that word) I made one of them my pretend brother :D
The flights were 6 hours, including the stop, and they were super fun. All 21 of us sat in the back and it was the best! I could write pages on what we did but I won't. Sorry :-P
That's my ISTA recap and I haven't even covered 1/3 of what happened. I hoped you liked it. If anything like ISTA is available to you, go!
Hugs and butterfly kisses,
