So today we had to take a REALLY REALLY long bus ride from Boston to New York and at first I thought that I was gonna sleep but then I looked outside and it was just so beautiful I knew I couldn't go to sleep. We were driving right by the coast but the trees were blocking the view so only from Tim to time could I actually see the ocean. I noticed when drivekng that many of the houses were colonial like. When we got to New York we went to Central Park and got to climb all these different states and see scenes from different movies and tv shows I like, such as The Stuart little Pont, the Steps of gossip Girl, the Waldorf hotel and the part of Central Park where Kevin met the old Bird Lady in Home Allne 2. We also saw a statue of a Polish king which we found odd but after looking it up, I learned that it was put on the entrance of the Polish Pavillion in The World Fair in Queens but then Poland got invaded by the Nazis so they couldn't bring it back and then it was later placed in Central Park by the Government as a symbol for the courageous Plish people. after Central Park,these went to the Metand I absolutely adored the 19th Century exhibit. My favorite ones were by a French Man name Edgar Degal who used pastels to draw ballerinas and even made a famous sculpture. After the Met we took the Bus around the City and Mike, our awesome tour guide, taught us all about how to talk with a bNew York Accent and son special things that New Yorkers say like in stead of North and South, they said Uptown and Downtown. I.also learned that when New Yorkers aid excuse me, they didn't mean " can u please move over so that I can pass", they meant " I'm plowing past u biz ur too slow and I'm just saying this because it's the polite thing to do. after that we went to Time square which was flooded with tourists and we went to eat street meat which kept on falling apart. Something I've learned is that you should never feed a pigeon or else more will come. We later went to Bradway and watched Matilda which was surprising for me because there were theses little 8 year olds getting a standing ovation at a Broadway Musical .
