Happy Blue dreams


New York. I don't have to even begin to tell you any more before images of twinkling night lights glimmer through your head. The lights seem to be the only (almost) still sight in New York, for as they say 'New York never sleeps'. It may sound all a bit of a cliche- but it honestly does feel like that (which sounds like even more of a cliche). Taking those characteristics of New York on, I went to bed at 1am and woke up at 7am in order to get most things done. So to conclude it all, I'll just quickly tell you in list form what I did (thought that would sound even more chaotic!)-arrived in New York via bus at 2pm, checked in at the Waldorf Astoria, ventured on a Downtown tour bus, went up the empire state, went to bed, woke up, took a ferry cruise, visited the fabulous and trendy Soho, visited Greenwich village, had an evening meal, took a night tour, went to bed and woke up again, went uptown through the upper East side (where Gossip Girl was filmed), visited the Googenheim museum, went to the Harry Potter exhibit, saw Phantom of the Opera on Broadway, went to bed and woke up again, visited Moma... and then took the bus home. Of course there was lots of shopping in between, helping my imagination picture being part of Sex and the City. One bit of advice I have to offer is if you go to New York in the summer, visit Bryant Park in the evening- there is such a comforting ambience floating about.

P.S. Currently blogging in Hurricane Irene!
