Hello blog fans! Its you favourite but rather lesser spottedÂ travel guide, James!!!! Hold the applause.
It is my job to guide you through the 6th and penultimate day of our NY trip.
Today was a slightly less frenzied day. Not to say that there was less walking because believe me there definitely wasn't but it seemed a little less frantic, so that was nice. I think we have firmly parted ways with our two friends Chris and TJ???? (still not sure). they seem to want to do rather less walking than us,w hich I dont blame them for but also seem to want to go and 'hang' in Harlem, which I do. That does seem a rather ridiculous thing to be doing at the minute. Especailly as I regailed them with the rapper incident the first night we were here! You would have thought that that would have been enough to warn them from staying in places like harlem, but no. So although we share one room I feel that we can no longer call them travelling buddies. That means that me and Chris are again all alone in the world with only each other for company. I think we'll live.
Right onto today: Our first stop was the world renowned Carnegie Hall, with slightly less renowned tour guides, and I think we can see why. Although her stories were interesting (I'm sure to some) it was merely the presentation that put myself and mr lamming right off. I really dont think that being however old she was (maybe 90?) that it gives her the right to tell stories very slowly and go off at tangents every 15 seconds when she has forgotten something else that we were supposed to be told. O well.... it was a nice hall and now we can say we have been there.
Next was Radio City where we got to meet an actual rockette!!!! no kidding! we were not completely sure who these world renowned dancers were before going but are definitely glad that we have met one now, just stopping short of having our picture taken with one.
Then we decided to head off to Bloomingdales and see what that had to offer us. And the answer was not very much. Macy's and Bloomingdales only seem to stock very expensive clothes which neither me nor chris are in the habit of buying. Especially on our budget.
Today, we also wanted to get across to the lincoln centre, which was my personal favourite tour of the day. It has 5 performance spaces all in one complex. You could probably go to see anything there... the bigger theatre was like the national and the ballet theatre was prob about the size of carnegie hall. Amazing!!!! and the tour group was only 5 including us so we got to ask as many questions as we liked. Else it went a bit silent.... :s
And that was ourt day really... got a lot done but felt a bit more relaxed. Think tomorrow is going to be finishing up the last bits before we jet off to hawaii, so should be another busy day. Cant wait for the walking!
Love to you all
