NYC Update #1

Last night we headed to Grand Central Station for dinner. All of us ate at different places. I enjoyed a delicious tomato soup and salad.

The highlight of the station was the acoustics. Between the main concourse and the dining area is a small area where the acoustics are amplified and you can talk to each other by whispering in the corner. At first the students were skeptical to stand facing the wall to talk, but once they tried it, they were impressed.

After being turned around a few times we made it to the Empire State Building. Once we discovered there was a 2 hour wait we returned to our hotel and managed to get a few hours of sleep.

This morning we left early to visit the Today Show. At approximately 7:34 when Al Roker came out to deliver the news segment the camera caught us.  Al was nice enough to shake all the students hands.

On schedule for today: Tour of NBC studio, ice skating, Natural History Museum and the Broadway show 'Rock of Ages'.

With only 4 1/2 hours of sleep, I am feeling jet-lagged and tired; however, I am sure I will perk up as the day progresses.

Until the next update...
