Our English teachers Mr Dennis Tam and Miss Candy Ho brought 15 boys to fly to London Heathrow Airport on 31 July. Another 4 boys were already waiting in England to join the group. The organizer picked them up from the airport and took them to Cambridge by coach. The boys arrived at Fitzwilliam College at 11:30pm where they will stay for the rest of the tour.
They met their mentors and were sent back to their rooms straight away for a rest. It was obviously an exhausting start and I am not surprised that none of my budding "reporters" sent in anything upon arrival!
Here I have a few more pictures from Mr Tam...
Stay tune for more excitements!

31st July, 2016
It was such a tiring day through the 12-hour flight but an excited day meeting the new environment at Cambridge.
Through the 12 hours, I have noticed that the sky kept on going sunny without any trace of darkness until we arrived London and checked out. All the time, the sky was warm and bright that the air hostesses ordered to lower the window shades to let the passengers sleep.
Arriving at London, the sky finally came into the dark as we rushed with the time for sleep because of jet lag. Wow! A lot of things surprised me such as that the temperature is surprisingly low once I got off the bus arriving at Fitzwilliam College. Besides, our mentors were so powerful, handling my group's huge luggage all the way from the ground floor to the second floor while handling their files and documents at the same time and with so much patience solving our problems when we first arrived.
My room was very modern with wooden desks and wooden shelves. They were no fans or air-conditioners because the room is powered by natural wind. Sunshine could be reached in different places in the room. I felt a great smell of books along the way from the hallway to the room and it made me think of professional colleges just like this one!
Overall, I was tired after the flight but what impressed me was being able to express my excitement so I got the energy to forget my tiredness.
Sleep now! Let me write you tomorrow about my adventures at Cambridge.
