Today was our last full day in Edinburgh. Several of us woke up early to hike up Arthur's Seat to get a view of the city. The hike was about 30 minutes and it was a beautiful sight.
Then several NPAC members went back to the Royal Mile to do some last minute shopping. We then returned to the dorm to participate in the closing ceremonies. We heard wonderful speeches by AHSTF staff people and others. The message of holding on to the memories of this experience was not lost on the NPAC members.
Finally, we had our farewell celebration dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe. The dinner ended with each NPAC cast member and alumni staff member thanking Mr. Kitsu and Roy and Glen . . . it was a very emotional time. Then the NPAC cast and staff surprised Mr. Kitsu and Roy and Glen with gifts . . . what a great bunch of people!
Finally we returned to the dorms to pack and to prepare for the long trip home. We will post more thoughts from the cast and alumni over the next week. Thank you to everyone who helped us live this dream and thank you to everyone who took time to follow this blog and support our efforts at the Fringe.
