There was not a cloud in the sky and the sun was very intense, so about a half hour into the ceremony we ran for the shade. We hung out there for a bit until they did the conferring of degrees on the law grads. It's such a big event that we couldn't see the speaker and had to watch him on the giant screen. Here is the dean of the law school asking the president of the university to give the law students their degrees.
After the commencement B picked up his diploma, and we attended a reception (with champagne!). And then we had more New York City excitement, as we went to the Burger Joint for lunch!
After that we rode a carriage through Central Park, and then walked around in FAO Schwartz and Tiffany's, and then hit Rockefeller Center and Saint Patrick's Cathedral. And then we were exhausted.
We have the real law school graduation today, which will be much smaller and nicer, so that's exciting. And there will be about five receptions for us to attend afterward, but that will be cool. Hopefully there will be champagne!
