Bryant Park where we ate lunch in the rain

So Heather was supposed to come in late Thursday evening, but beacuse of weather delays, her flight did not get into LaGuardia until 3 AM Friday morning. Scott and Aaron had difficulty getting to the airport because of some buss delay in Harlam in the middle of the night, so the 3 of them finally made it back to the apartment at 430 AM Friday. AND poor Scott had started feeling bad on Thursday and not not really slept before he went to pick up Heather.

So, Scott slept all day on Friday, as did Josh and Amanda! Boo on them! However, we all woke up to rain and chilly air on Friday! It was a welcome change to the opressive heat, but none were prepared, clothes-wise! We all hit Old Navy and bought jackets and sweatshirts. It was in the 60's all day! Me and Rach ended up matchy in our black trench coats and red umbrellas.

..Heather just rolled her eyes...

We girls shopped alot that day and a few of us had lunch in Bryant Park next to the library. That night, everyone got a little dressed up and we ate dinner at Brasserie 360 in the Upper East Side. It was nice that they gave us the whole top part of the restaurant all to ourselves! After that, we visited Grand Central Station! I love Grand Central! It makes me feel like I am back in an old 1940's movie or something! The ceiling there is painted with constellations, and the chandeliers are beautiful! Even though it is not the transportation hub it used to be, it is still fun to visit!

Most of the students went to the Empire State Building after that, but me and Scott and Josh and Amanda went back to the apartment. We had a long drive ahead of us...if we only knew...
