Almost the week is over!!

30 Sep

Day  5:  My little town blues, they are melting away, I gonna make a brand new start of it, in old New York… with the rhythm of Frank Sinatra song, I enjoyed some time sitting just in the middle of Time Square. It was me sitting in the red chair with my yellow taxi umbrella…people was moving from one way to the other, philharmonic music was surrounding the place, lights and ads changing all over us.  There is so much energy, that it seems that being on this place can make you addicted. Addicted to feel the energy that is everywhere.

Towards Time Square

At Time Square…eating, for a change…

I can say that this spot is one of my favorite ones… After walking the whole morning with the rain, I got tired. I run on to this little store, next to the information center in the Time Square, asking for the price of an umbrella. After waiting for 15 minutes, the guy in the store asked me to wait, as  he needed to bring one umbrella from the storage.  Ten minutes later, I wanted to run out from the store, the guy just charged 12 USD to this foreign people for that simple umbrella.. Incredible!!. At the same time, the guy arrived with the brand new umbrella from the storage, and told me..as you are “my paisana”, which means we are from the same country, take it for 5 bucks.. wow.. great start for today!!!.  I still feel pity for the other guy, but well, I continue walking around this great city..

After walking for an hour, I felt the need to get on a library. So I started walking towards Berns and Noble. Small library, but got two books I was looking for.. Eat, Love and Pray and the second fiction book, which I do not remember the name now..something about the girl who likes the fire …

Went out from the library, and the rainy was worst.. so needed to get on an starbucks to have a hot mocha and start reading the book, while my feet get some rest.  Stayed there for a couple of hours until it stopped the rain.

Time to go back and feel back the energy of time square, so I went back to this great spot, and walk around..checking every add posted around this place, taking pictures as another tourist around the place. I was already 5-6 hours moving from one place to the other…already 6PM..until I felt something talking to me…ooops my poor stomach was claiming some attention… Sooo..after looking the list of places for eating, got this great thai spot close to broadway.

I headed to this very nice place, and as expected, I requested some green curry with sticky rice… while I continue reading Eat, Love and Pray… huh.. seems it was day of addictions.. or I would rather say, satisfaccions..

  Great early dinner, great book, great people, great city… it is already 8PM, let-s go back to NJ, I thought. It was my first time going in the train by myself, so i decided to head back early.  After one hour, I can report I arrived pretty good. No lost.

Day 6: Family Day.  I am going to meet up with my aunt in Manhattan to go to the Madamme Nusseau..Once there, I was with my mouth opened all the time, looking how thin hollywood women are, incredible!!!.. I love food, not sure I can ever be that size. Anyway, it was also great to find those great and cute guys so real… I was so excited. I was 10 at that moment, jumping and moving from one place from the other, I want a picture with everybody.  After this, early lunch.. fortunately my cousin, Hans, is free, so we went out to The Dinner restaurant in the location of Chelsea. My aunt’s nephew is a manager of that restaurant, so we took advantage to have lunch there, talk to him, and receive a great service.  Very nice, you know, after so much time to not see your family, you start getting in touch with all the details…

With my guys!!!..

Time to go back to Time Square, and get some tickets for a Broadway..didn’t found the one for Billi Elliot, so we decided to watch the New York Ballet in the Liconln Center.  We jump on a bus, looking the broadway streets towards the Liconln Center. The plan is to have some early dinner before the Ballet, so we went to Fiorello’s Restaurant by my auntie’s recommendation.  Great dinner, now.. it is time to run and cross the street to get to the ballet.

I believe I ate soo much, I am falling sleep the first ten minutes, I am starting to think that I do not like the ballet, how it is possible, I am falling sleep.. I suppose to adore the ballet… Suddenly, there is a piece that started from Tchaivkosky after that, mmmm, it seems i am waking up.. great!!..Amazing, the show was great…after that piece, it started the main one based on an Argentinan Poem.. Great Show, totally awake, so I am very pleased.

Outside the Theatre, it was a lot of windy…
