I thought that chaperoning our daughter’s fourth grade class field trip would be an enjoyable experience, then i was looking forward to spending some extra time with our daughter, meeting her classmates & participating in the tour of a historical fort.
I didn’t realize that the fort was situated over an minute away & that we’d be traveling by university bus, but although both of us headed out at 8 o’clock in the day, the outside temperature was already 85 degrees! The bus was not equipped with any genre of a/c! For safety purposes, the windows only open about more than one inches.
They brought in legitimately little air, & the bus was horribly hot. It was also severely outdated & bounced us all over the location, by the time both of us arrived at the fort, several of the adolescents were carsick & I was dealing with a raging headache. I then discovered that the tour of the fort is particularly outdoors. For the majority of the time, both of us were exposed to direct sunlight. The adolescents were hot, bored, cranky & most of them ended up sunburned. The only air conditioned part was the gift shop, however my little group of ladies & I lingered in that air conditioned gift shop for as long as possible! No a single wanted to get back onto that sizzling & sticky bus for the ride home. I can’t imagine who thought it would be a good idea to send a group of adolescents to an outdoor fort in the middle of June. I’m sure there’s an indoor, air conditioned aquarium or math museum in closer proximity.
