I'm a New York virgin and do you know what? I'm being quite the tourist on this trip so far but why the hell not, I'm having a great time. Just walking around is a bit of a sensory overload. I'm too busy looking around, up, down & along to take much notice of the direction I'm moving in and where I'm actually supposed to be going. I follow Penny, she knows what she is doing. She's ace!
So far no one has said "HEY! I'm walking here!" yet but there have many opportunities where I could have put on my best (i.e. rubbish) New Yoik accent and yelled it myself. Highlight of the yelling I've heard so far was and old lady who shouted "Motherfuckers get out of the way" at some people, probably bloody tourists, they're everywhere.
So here's to museums, walking, boat rides with hilariously cheesy tour guides, walking, excellent beers, walking, my new hat (it makes me look like a local... really it does... stop laughing at the back), amusing stickers on the side of bins (see picture) and walking, lots of walking and to this big apple bursting my tiny cherry.
Speak to you soon!
