Where is Buddy Bear?
Since I am traveling with a dozen seventeen-year-olds who are in my charge, there will be no "gay fun" on this trip. This will be very different from my last trip, my Big City Gay Adventure, which I wrote quite a few posts on, from this one , that one and ending with this one In particular, there will be no hotel-room hookups with random guys. To do so (and to be caught) could possibly result in the loss of my job and a revocation of my professional certification. I may be courageous in my gay journey, but I'm not stupid!
There is still much fun to be had on this trip, however. We are having the greatest fun mercilessly teasing the young man who attempted to board the plane with his library card as his only ID! Being a very small town, the plane was delayed by ten minutes while his mommy raced back home to get his passport. What a hoot!
It is so much fun working with young people! Some of the small-town teenagers on our trip had never been on a plane before, much less been to a major city. The whole group was, in the words of one of them, "quivering with excitement" as we took off.
While the young people had some free shopping time, I strolled through the gay village and took these pictures:
