More than 370 East Texans travelling with Tyler Junior College arrived safely in Germany today. After landing at the airport in Frankfurt, the group was greeted by a bus tour company who took them to their hotels in Heidelberg, about an hour away.
The logistics of moving a group this large, so far away is challenging, but our Joe Terrell, who is travelling with them, says, with the exception of a few luggage delays, the operation is running like a well oiled machine. Perhaps the biggest challenge today, is staying awake, so as to avoid jet lag during the rest of their 11 day European tour.
Tomorrow is a busy day for the members of the TJC band, choir and Apache Belles. They will be performing a huge USO-style show for American troops stationed at Ramstein Air Force Base.
Joe and photographer, Jamey Boyum will be there too to capture all the action. Look forward to updates from Joe and Jamie throughout the week. They will be sending video and pictures for all of East Texas to see.

For an hour and a half a standing room only crowd was wowed by the world famous Apache Belles, the band, "Harmony & Understanding," and the jazz band.
What a night!
