WEST STOCKBRIDGE, Massachusetts, U.S.A. - It’s raining and we’re rubbing our eyes after waking up before the crack of dawn. Everyone’s crammed into a minivan loaded with our luggage, snacks and two big collies.
Press passes for all the YJI students who
 will take

part in Toronto Tour 2014
Amongst the three of us, we found out, we speak six languages: English, Spanish, Russian, French, Latin and Telugu.
We, however, only anticipate using our amazing English skills while on this particular trip.
We know all the places we’re going and we’re super excited. Later today we’ll be chilling in the National Women’s Hall of Fame and seeing the place where early American suffragists presented the Declaration of Sentiments, but for now we’re just sitting in the car talking and seeing all the cool landmarks on the way, like the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts.
We’re hoping that the weather will clear up soon and as we enter the Berkshire hills it looks like it’s going to.
