So I woke up early again, not wanting to wake anyone just because I was an early bird, I made my way to breakfast to chat more with Mama and to try out my Spanish.
I returned to find everybody just about up and getting ready to check out. I handed my bags over to Mama who promised to look after them fro me today so I didn't have to drag my laptop and bags round with me all day and we all made our way to the subway for our second day in NYC.
I love New York. There is just something about it, it's alive and it's carefree, relaxed but people are serious. It's not pretentious and everywhere you look there is something new to see.
We parted ways again as the girls went to meet up with Johnny and look at more apartments and I dragged Simon to the American Museum of Natural History as that was where The Night AT The Museum was filmed.
The first thing you see is the statue of Teddy outside on his horse. We walked around for a few hours looking at everything on offer. In my opinion the Air and Space museum in Washington D.C was still the most exciting and interesting Museum I've seen so far. This one was ok. I had a photo with DumDum and Rexy but the exhibitions were rather dully set out but still worth seeing. The dinosaur area was my favourite. The real bone displays were incredible and so big! Really cool to see.
We then made our way to Broadway and Canal Street in search for the Ghostbusters Firehouse but alas we ran out of time and didn't get to see it.
We all met up and made our way back to the hotel around 5pm to pick up my bags and get the car in which for some reason they allowed me to drive. I took it around the block to get used to it and being on the other side of the road, for some reason I find it very easy to adapt. So I drove us all the way home, 5 hours straight, right out of the centre of NY, through New Jersey, through Maryland, back to Johnnys house in Virginia where we dropped off him and Katrina and I swapped driving with Simon and passed out in the back which he drove us the next hour or so back to his.
And here I am, its Monday and its raining again, which is nice as it gives us an excuse to laze around today while I update my blog, try and upload photos and plan what to do for the next couple of days that I have left here in Virginia. I think on Wednesday I'm in charge of painting the outside of their barn as Simon will be at work and I wont have anything to do, plus it should be hot and sunny that day so perfect for getting some sun. Perhaps a winery tomorrow other then that its an open book.
Hope everyone is peachy.
Over and out
