We took a two hour bus ride to get pizza and soda for lunch. After we went to Historic Jamestown. We saw statues of James and Pocahontas aka Mohaten along with other items from the first permanent settlement of the English.

Next we had a tour of the Glass Blowing factory. Here are the answers to the test. To make red glass use copper and gold, to make yellow use silver, to make blue use cobalt, to make white use tin, to make brown use carbon, to make clear glass use magnesium, and to make green do nothing -  the natural color of glass is green. The glass is made up of sand, lime stone, soda ash and potash.

We meet Felix Simmons - we will never forget him. He gave us a tour of the Jamestown Settlement. He told us how to say hello in Powhatan - mogaquin and the reply is anah.

We saw the Powhatan Indian Village and the James Fort and the three ships: Susan Constance, Godspeed, and the Elizabeth. We thought it was the Discovery but I guess we were wrong.

ALOHA from Hawaii!
Good evening, HMS students. I'm one of Mrs. Yap's 2 sisters and was happy to receive the email with your trip updates. You look like you're all having a great time!! I'm sure that this trip will be a memorable one for you with lots of adventures. Wasn't that red panda at the zoo interesting? I first saw this animal in the Central Park Zoo in NY and, to me, it looks just like a fox. I just saw another one in the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo a few weeks ago. This zoo is also well known for their giant panda; your picture of it was much better than mine. I would have enjoyed the glass blowing demonstration - it's just awesome to see a molten blob being transformed into a work of art!! Take care and enjoy your trip. I look forward to checking on your daily entries. -- Susan Tokuhama
