It happens: one minute you're seeing the sights, and the next minute you ARE the sight.
This English-language class was hanging around the Garden hoping to talk to foreigners, so we chatted with them for a while. It was a big group, maybe 30 kids, about evenly divided between boys and girls. Most of them want to be a pilot, a movie star, a doctor, or the President (it was a actually a girl who said President, which was cool). Their favorite movie is "Cars," the Pixar flick. They were pretty cute.
