And we’re off!

Today’s the day! We woke up bright and early to meet at the airport for 5:40am. Together,  we (Anna, Ben, Cleo and Huong) boarded our flight for Chisasibi at 7:40am, while our profs, Sophie and Kelly boarded their’s shortly after us.20160527_092946

Our flight of 5.5 hours with Air Creebec over 1400 km consisted of intermediate turbulence, wonderful airplane food (it actually was pretty good!) several pit-stops for refueling in Val d’Or and Waskaganish before we finally arrived in Chisasibi! Here we are boarding in Montreal at 7:40am for our flight.
