Saturday in New York City

Radio City Stage

We saw Cirque du Soleil Zarkana at Radio City Music Hall today.  Well, technically yesterday because it's after midnight now.  It was spectacular!  Everyone should see at least one Cirque show in their lifetime...the acrobats are AMAZING!  They do some tricks that seriously seem to defy gravity.  This particular show runs until early October if you are interested.  We went with our friends Nimish and Meghna and we all loved it.

After the show we went to the High Line Park.  This is an elevated park running through several West Side neighborhoods.  It used to be a railroad line, so that freight trains could run easily through the city, but it hasn't been used for this purpose since 1980.  One of the highlights of our walk through the park was getting ice pops from La Newyorkina.  It's a cart in the park that sells Mexican ice pops.  Meghna and I got cucumber lime ones, Mark had grapefruit, and Nimish had passionfruit.  They were so fresh and delicious...I gotta figure out how to make them!

We finished the evening by having sushi at a restaurant in Chelsea.  I was tired by the end of the evening but it was a super fun day in the city!
