Our last night at Key Issues Institute was a memorable one. Since we were teachers from all over the United States (and one from Jamaica), we were instructed to bring a gift that represents our geographic location.Here is a photo of 4/5 of the teachers from California.
I was lucky enough to receive a jar of homemade apricot jam for a teacher in Utah! Yum! The perfect gift for a foodie like me!
My gift was a perfect representation of Southern California. Kelly, from Ohio, thought so too! She loves the beach and totally loved the mini-surfboard plaque.
We even stumbled upon our friend, Darren, who invited us to sample his dish from Rasta Pasta– a fusion of Jamaican and Italian food. It was a flavor explosion!
After we left Darren to enjoy the rest of his dinner, the three of us set out in search of the Breckinridge Brewery and Pub. With the help of Google Maps on my iPhone, we arrived at our destination.
The place was packed but we were able to find seats at the bar.
So, who goes to a brewery and only drinks iced tea? This guy!
We made sure to leave with enough time to walk back to the bus but still be able to take in the sights and visit a spice & tea shop along the way.
This was definitely an unforgettable night and a great way to end our week at Key Issues Institute! Thank you to Keystone Science School and my sponsor, Alcoa, form this amazing week!
