Fast pace life is what New York is all about. From second to second, minute to minute the people, places and things fly by me like fighter jets locked in a dog fight.
Friday night I learned how to ride the subway and we have been using it ever since. I would like to thank Charla’s uncle who patiently took the time to show us how to do it and answer our endless, probably ridiculous sounding questions. But like true New Yorkers we are now schlepping up and down the seemingly endless subway steps to jump on the next train to our next destination.
Like the eb and flow of the tide the sea of humanity flows through the city. It’s sensory overload. People here people there and it goes on for ever. The hustle and the bustle of the city only slows down at night but never stops. We walked around the city a bit yesterday. Ate a very delicious dinner at a vegan restaurant Candle Cafe. Then at midnight we visited the top of the Empire State Building.
The trip is coming up fast. There’s so much to do and so little time. I think we have our trip scheduled as much as possible with time left over for impromptu sightseeing. So here it as it sits now.
