Despite the heat wave, the group was determined to see more of New York, especially after sitting through their second SAT practice test in the morning. We hopped on the subway for a day of exploration. Our first stop was shopping in Soho, with everything from art stands to boutiques. We all ended in Union Square to see Fuerza Bruta. For those who have not seen it, the convoluted* show uses strobe lights, fog, mist, water, and music to create a truly amazing and unique experience. The students had an incredibly fun time dancing and interacting with the show. Many left the theater dripping with water, which was the perfect ending to a hot day. After the show, we indulged in a delicious Thai meal at Spice where we sat down to good food, good company, and good synergy*. Although we came back exhausted, everyone enjoyed getting to know New York and each other much better.
