YO was up????
Well here I am, safely in New York! It is so ridiculously hot, and only 5am. I didn't think I would suffer jet lag as I went to bed last night at 11pm NY time which is about 3am UK time, yet am still wide awake at the crack of dawn.
So, I checked in and all went well at Heathrow yesterday. Spookily I bumped into a girl I used to work with at Argos so we've stuck together since then! She's off to Philly today tho so not sure when I'll see her again!
Flight was fine and was very glad to arrive in NY last night. 45 min coach ride (including a route through what I would definately say is the bronx - scary stuff) and we arrived at a VERY hot and sticky Columbia Uni. After checking in and finding our rooms, me, Sophie (Argos friend) and another girl called Catherine had showers and ventured out into the darkness of NYC. We were all so thirtsy and hungry and when we came to a deli on the corner I almost kissed the floor! Stocked up witha bottle of water, sprite, bag of 'chips' (horrid) and a nice big tub of watermelon. MMMMMMMM. At this point there was a fantastic storm going on and I heard so many sirens it was like being in a movie!
Sleeping was hard, so hot but lucky I have a fan that does practically nothing but I feel better knowing its there. Am waiting now for breakfast which is in just under 2 hours, and then am free to explore! Not sure where I'm going to go yet so I will keep you posted! Internet pretty restricted so will write when I next get the chance!!
Peace out!! xxx
