Govern’s Travel Diary

Wednesday, 06 Sep 2006

Location: New York, New York State, USA

MapToday was a pretty rushed day as my friend Rob flies home tomorrow so he wanted to see as much as he could in one day, and being the friendly type I decided to tag along, however not realising how fast it would be.

We saw Empire State Building or what we thought was the Empire State building but was in fact the Chrysler Building. They look pretty similar. Then off to 34th Street just to check out Macy's which was pretty awesome, then off to the harbour on 12th avenue to ride the 30 minute speedboat which takes you just off the coast of the Statue oF Liberty to a compendium of Jock Jam tunes (Let's Get Ready to Rumble, Space Jam songs etc) took a few photos of the Manhattan skykline, headed back once more to Times Square and then to 5th Avenue to walk into all of the uber-Designer stores, Gucci, Armani, Versace, pretty expensive stuff. $400 for a pair of trainers.

All of this before 1pm. Not bad timing if I do say so myself!!!

It was then back to the hotel after a cup of tea in Starbuck's for a Siesta and then another night excurison into the illuminated paradise of TImes Sq.

A fantastic first day in 'the city that never sleeps'.
