On March 6 a group of 18 Central Lyon High School students along with 5 adults left Sioux Falls on a great adventure.  They flew to Chicago and then to London.  In London they saw the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, visited Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus and rode the London Eye.  After visiting London, the group rode the Eurostar to Paris.  There they visited the Eiffel Tower (some even climbed it!), Notre Dame cathedral and the Louvre Museum.  After a boat tour on the Seine River, they went to the top of the Montparnasse Tower for a spectacular view of Paris at night.  The group took an overnight train with a stop in Milan and then on to Rome.  In Rome they visited the Colosseum and the Roman forum. They also the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.  The trip was a success even though there were delays coming home.  It was an adventure that they will always remember.
