CCID Scholars on Big City Tour

IMG_9214Today thanks to our friends at Bridges International, all of our CCID Scholars were able to join 300 international students for a most excellent tour of Houston.

The air conditioned bus tour took everyone to all the major land marks in Houston.  We had a chance to get out visit and take pictures. 

IMG_9224 After a very filled morning, the buses arrived the Van Dyke’s home.  There we were treated to a full lunch. 

And then spent the day enjoying time in the “largest home swimming pool” in North America.  It was great swimming and a great boat ride around the pool—a boat in the swimming pool really.

IMG_9269 We got to met many new international friends from Rice University, and University of Houston. 

As the day came to an end, there was a drawing for some nice prizes.  Three of our team won and picked from an array of prizes. 

After that we took a nice drive back to the campus and the apartments.IMG_9321

A special thanks again to the Van Dykes, the volunteers, and the team at Bridges International.
