The End of the Trip… but it’s not over.

So today marks the end of our trip! It was such an amazing experience, and I just want to thank everyone who made it possible: way to go Maria, Jessica, Heather, Andy, Joe, Alexander, Emma, Stephanie, Dr. Coyle, and Antonio for making this such an unbelievable journey! The past few days have been a wonderful experience for me which I know will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Today was relaxed in some ways, stressful in others, and slightly tiring, but fun all the same. It started quite early when I had to get up and drive Andy, Joe, Maria, and Heather to the Metro so they could prepare for their interview with the former (I believe) Vice-president of Dreamworks. After dropping them off, Alexander and I got some gas in the van (Alexander hopped up on the car and washed the windshield too) and picked up the rest of the crew back at their respective houses.

After stopping at Seven-Eleven for a quick bite to eat, we were on the Metro armed with cameras, mics, cables, and our highly sharpened senses of humor. These all came into play as we filmed some shots by the water with the Washington Monument and Georgetown as our backdrops. After some highly expeditious filming we shot on over to Dr. Coyle’s hotel to pick up the equipment and the rest of our crew.

As we said our goodbyes, I realized that while the trip may be coming to a close, the impact that the past few days has had on me will last forever. Not only was meeting the Pope a life-changing experience, but simply bonding with the wonderful members of our crew was something that I know I will always be grateful for.

Please pray for us all as we try to finish up finals, edit all of our footage, and continue to have fun with each other.

Peace, Zach
