June 13 (Day 2)
The drive continued and we eventually arrived in Brooklyn! We got settled into our apartment which was very nice and spacious with living space for the eleven of us but only had ONE bathroom. We then shortly left the apartment to get metrocards and take our first train into the City. We headed to Peridance, to make sure we were familiar with our path there. After that it began to rain heavily and we were all dressed for warm-sunny weather. The weather not stopping us we walked ten blocks to eat at Dojo’s. The food was very good and affordable. After dinner we headed back to Brooklyn were most people called it a night and some went to the grocery store for the rest of our stay. We are looking forward to performing at Peridance.
