Leaving on a Jet Plane – Day One

Here we go, ready to begin our journey to China! On Thursday, the six of us all met our Director and Choreographer Paige Carter at Will Rogers Airport early in the morning. And we mean,
e-a-r-l-y. The members going are LaTeshia, Shereka, Jessica, Jada, Kelsey and Sarah. There wasn’t a lot happening at the airport that early so we just waited for our connecting flight to Minneapolis. Once we got there we realized we had a six-hour layover!

So, we headed out into the St. Paul International Airport in search for one of our favorite things, food! After lunch we were fully awake and it finally began to sink in that we are headed overseas to represent the NBA, and the best team in the NBA. We’re so lucky to have all the support of fans back home, and now we get the chance to meet new ones! Speaking of fans, we ran into a few Thunder fanatics at the airport and took some pictures, as well as signed some autographs cards for them. After that, we went to grab a snack and somehow we got in a five-minute workout.

Our plane to Tokyo just got here and we are about to board our second to last flight. It’s leaving 30 minutes late so we may be cutting it close. We have two hours to make it through customs and board the final flight to Shanghai, China. Hope that is enough time!
