Day Three in the City

February 20, 2012

We had a very busy day today. We started the day off with a trip to the Statue of Liberty. None of us had ever been to the island before. Did you know that lady liberty weighs 225 tons and her index finger is eight feet long. We also stopped by Ellis Island. We watched a very informative video that explained all about the island, and had the chance to walk around for a bit.
After our adventurous morning we visited the sight of 9/11. It is amazing to think about all that happened there.
The students were most excited about shopping on 5th avenue this afternoon, they walked faster than hey ever have before. I guess they were trying to get in as much shopping as possible before the end of the day, they succeeded!
We had a real New York dinner, pizza! We also strolled through Times Square during the evening, so many bright lights.
We depart for Washington DC tomorrow morning very early, so it is off to bed!
