On Monday we walked around Middtown. We saw a man propose on the ice in front of Hermes at the Rockefeller Center. They kissed to the whole crowd cheering, I got a bit misty eyed watching it. We saw some nice window displays too but nothing like we could've see on certain parts of 5th Avenue. On Tuesday we took a train up to Scarsdale to see relatives. It was so pretty up there, small towns next to lakes and forest. They had a weekend snow storm and it was fresh white snow. Beneath the frozen top the snow was still powdery and oh so lovely.
Tuesday night I saw Equus again! You saw my post on that :)
Wednesday was hell. Mom got sick first. I got sick briefly and thought I'd be okay. We went down to breakfast and when waiting for the elevator..well I lost my breakfast. I stayed in bed all day and took many frequant bathroom trips. Thursday I was recovering.
We got up at 4:30am to get to JFK. At 7 we got in the air and landed in San Fransisco at 10am. We waited around until our 2pm flight and finally got into LA around 3:30.
That's the trip in a nutshell. We wanted to do so much! We wanted to see more window displays on 5th, we wanted to go to a few museums, go up to Top of the Rock, Central Park, etc etc. Oh well :\
Since we only really had two days of New York we didn't really get anything. However, I did go to the boutiques at Grand Central while waiting for our train. They had a little booth on green products and I picked up an awesome messenger bag. I'll probably use it instead of my purse, I've been meaning to give the purse a break anyway. This is the bag, isn't it awesome? :3
Zomg, Nessie swam across the Atlantic! Or it could be Champ going to another lake :P
I really like this one :)
No this doesn't need to be rotated. I have no idea what's going on in this display
I forgot the name of this artist. These glass sculptures are worth a lot. We have a Moses one (looks more like Jesus though!)
The tree on the "fireworks" setting, trippy!
The statue of Hermes
They had a light show on the ceiling of Grand Central (that place is so beautiful)
Outside Grand Central. That's the Chrysler Building in the backround
