The trip was well organized in every and each aspects such as accommodation in a fine hotel in Tempe, renting two cars, a trip to Grand Canyon and etc. The Phoenix trip started at Friday 27th of November and ended in Monday 30th. On Saturday the group decided to go on a somehow long trip to Grand Canyon. The trip started at 6 am and the group was at one of the most spectacular geological landscapes at 1 pm, spending near two hours and taking impressive photos thus exhausted of this compressed trip the group was at the hotel at 8 pm. Phoenix Zoo was the place where the group decided to visit on the following day. On the last days, the girls did some hiking on the hill in Tempe downtown which had a great view over the whole city and the boys browsed some unique districts of Phoenix with the sprit of old western America. The group all appreciates the IO for creating this brilliant memory for them to explore some other cities of United States.
