NEW YORK: SEMI-CONSCIOUS WANDERINGS.

Image
Definitely, not the best coffee I’ve ever drunk – but then again, exhaustion calls for extreme circumstances.

As I noted previously, we wren’t really awake when we landed in New York, as a consequence, the photos I took that day are a random mish-mash of things – we had only just arrived and were gathering our bearings. Our first port of call? Obtain coffee and a bite to eat, then stock up on water and USA-specific snacks and have a hot shower. Man, after a 24 hour flying time, I REALLY wanted a hot shower.

Our first-stop for eats – at Europa Cafe. These little cafe’s are plotted all around New York – and they’re a pretty good stop in for simple and okay-priced eats. Coffee is horrendous, of course. And yes, you can see Carnagie Hall reflected here – usually it looks much more amazing, but it’s undergoing renovations – so presently, not so flash.

We decide to drop into a few places after we manage to obtain sufficient fluids and had regenerated enough energy to stroll down towards Times Square – and we end up visiting a few little joints – first up, the M&M’s World Times Square store – 1600 Broadway  NY, 10019, New York, (212) 295-3850.

Cookie Monster and Elmo coast the streets looking for trouble – or, well, punters with a spare dollar – you can pose with all sorts of random characters for a buck.

YEAH YEAH YEAH: Welcome to Time Square (and Broadway). The vastness of this place is indescribable. Loved it – and it became our stomping ground for the next few says.

We desperately wanted to see a Knicks game, but when the prices of the tickets rang up to $350-$400 a pop for the the worst seats in the house, we changed our minds. We settled for watching the game on the telly in the comfort (and warmth) of our hotel room.

Image
All sorts of maddening souvenirs – I really wanted to haul home a few snow-globes and then changed my mind when I realised that they were practically impossible to take home without them smashing and filling my suitcase with gelatine.

Late night munchies – at a classic deli, before we headed back for sleep.
