The museum was unlike anything I had ever seen before. There was an endless line of paintings, artifacts, and sculptures; if I was an art major I'm sure I would've gone crazy in there. But even as someone with little experience/talent for art, I still believed that the Met was remarkable.

After our extensive walk through the Met, we ate dinner at this tasty restaurant called "Sarafina". Despite its three flights of stairs to get to the dining place, the venue was beautiful and the food was delicious. (But then again what place in New York isn't?)

After eating our delicious meal, we went back to Columbia via taxi. However, we hit a bump in the road and the car halted out of nowhere. For some reason, the car wouldn't start and the trunk kept opening during the journey. Our cab driver apologized and said that we could not proceed any further. It wasn't so bad though since we were only a mere 16 blocks away from Columbia. The way back was pretty crazy since my cohort was experiencing a "sugar rush", so we were much more hyper than how we usually are. I just remember laughing so much that I started to cry, which is something that rarely happens. I honestly love them and Ms. Thrift so much. I truly feel like we've developed a small family, and I know that we've got each other's backs in any situation.
When we finally returned back to Columbia, we knew it was the special time of the night when we had to blog about our wonderful days. We all met up at Mark and Deborah's building and blogged in their peaceful and classy lobby. Today was so jam-packed with an abundance of art and new memories! Next up for tomorrow: Coney Island!
