Final Day in America

Our final day and there were some very long faces this morning.  The whole trip has been great and as our constant companion throughout (Glen from the State Department) dealt with some issues at check-out,  it was odd to think that at the same time tomorrow we would be landing in Heathrow.


The six MPs were back together this morning under the guidance of World Boston who are managing the Massachusetts leg of the trip.  The first visit of the day was to the Kennedy School of Government which was established as a permanent and positive tribute to John F. Kennedy using a combination of funds raised in the wake of his tragic death and family contributions.

On the way to Boston

No rest even on a Sunday. Today was supposed to be a lie-in followed by an hour drive to Philadelphia Airport to catch a plane to Boston. However, whilst on the train from Washington I explained to Charlie that I was pleased to be paired with a Congressman from Pennsylvania due to the strong Welsh links with the state mentioning in particular the emigrants who left Wales for Pennsylvania to work in the coal and slate industries.
