In The Art of Travel Spring 2017, 8. Bubble, Paris by Zoya1 Comment

The most terrifying aspect of bubbles is how easy it is to actually break out of them.

Students don’t leave the Village, don’t go past 14th Street, and don’t get out of Manhattan (who actually goes to the Brooklyn campus anyway?).
