My New York trip was amazing, I only wish that it would have been longer. I got there Wednesday night around 9:00 because my flight was delayed twice. As soon as I got there, I got a taxi at the airport. I was alone, so it was a bit scary, since I never did this before. I told the driver the address to my hotel as if I had done this a million times. Off we went to the hotel. I arrived around 9:30 where my boyfriend met me outside to pay the taxi for me. We went up to our room. A two bedroom suite we were sharing with his cousin and his cousin’s wife. We got the smaller room with our own restroom. The restroom was outside the room, but right across the hall and the room had a full size bed with two night stands attached. There was a chair on the right hand corner of the room with our luggage on top of it. My boyfriend had taken our big luggage with him Tuesday morning.
I opened the view to the big city. It was a bit rainy but a beautiful night. I had already done my hair here at home, so I freshened up my makeup, washed my bangs and got dressed. Our first night out we headed to an Italian restaurant. My dish wasn’t the best I’ve had, so I was a bit disappointed, however, when I went looking for the restroom it was down stairs. We found a little bar down there. Very cool looking, with little nooks, of a card table, packman and more. We hung out there until the rain passed. We then headed out to this little lounge/club where we drank some more and danced. We got back to the hotel around 5am and decided to look for a place to eat. We could only find a little market near by. My boyfriend and his cousin got breakfast and us girls just decided to not eat. I am not a breakfast person so at this point I just wanted to sleep! I had already been up for 24 hours.
Thursday in New York
Thursday we got up and headed to the Light Fair. This was the reason my boyfriend and his cousin was there. We walked around with them for about 2 hours. As we were heading out, it was raining hard, we ended up having to buy a $10 umbrella so we can go walking looking for a taxi. None of the taxi’s were heading towards where we were, so we had to go towards them. As we arrive to a corner, we pull over a taxi. The taxi driver put his blinker on, but this huge truck had to break a little. The guy got out of the truck and started yelling at the taxi driver and banging on his car. We were all shocked at first, so we just stayed quiet. The taxi driver defended himself and his car, stating he put his blinker on, and if the guy kept hitting his car, he would call the cops. As the little old man (taxi driver) turned away, the guy pushed him. That is when my boyfriends Cousin finally told the guy to back off. The guy didn’t even look our way, he finally just got back in his truck. We got into the taxi, and headed to China Town. It was still raining, but that wasn’t going to stop us from going to a little whole in the wall Chinese restaurant. The food was Delish! We later walked around, but it was a bit hard to look with all the rain. We headed to Sojo where I attempted to buy clothes. And as you have it “murphey’s law” came into play, as I didn’t find not one piece of clothing, not one pair of shoes, not one purse to buy. We went back to the hotel to get ready for our night adventure. We went to the comedy club where we laughed our hearts out, then we went to eat sushi, and out to party. The night ended real late.
Friday in New York
Friday we went to Central Park, 5th Ave, we went by where the Twin Towers used to be, China Town, the subway and it was all wonderful. We went out to eat friday night and I was so full I couldn’t breath. We went to a lounge that was more like a club and then we went to the pub near our hotel. The night ended great.
We packed our things and headed to the airport, I wish I had more time in New York, but I truly had a great time with my boyfriend and his cousins. Next time we go we have to see so much stuff and so much more to eat. This was only the beginning of our many trips. I cannot wait for our next trip =)
