I know that everyone takes these pictures, I'm so sorry, I couldn't resist. And, yes, my car has been down Broadway.
The whole of the trip was pretty amazing. A few friends (a local, two transplants, and a fellow tourist) went to see the New York Philharmonic play Haydn's 90th symphony at Lincoln Center on Saturday night and then stopped at a really awesome pizza place on 6th somewhere near 44th or 43rd. And we ate it folded just like real New Yorkers.
Then the usual trip to the the Statue of Liberty, walks around the city, cheese and bread shopping in Little Italy and trouncing around China Town. And subways. Yikes.
I got to stay with the Dierkings at their home in Yonkers which was very nice. I really don't think I've ever slept so consistently well in my life! I even got to help mow the church lawns and sing in the Sunday morning service which made me really feel at home.
I got to have dinner with Ethan, who travelled to New York and Turkey with me last year. That was very cool. It's hard when you and your friends diverge after school because you can't just up and decide to go out with everyone the way you could before. It's a good thing there are extended week-ends.
My travel bug is sufficiently quenched for at least another year. But that won't stop me from trying to visit Florida in August... I hope.Posted by timf at June 8, 2005 06:13 PM
