This morning, we woke up at aroun 9am having only got to bed at 3am so that we could go and sees a gospel choir. unfortunately we found out that the services we at 7am so we missed them. We had no chance really after we went to get Marica up and she said come back later, then Mikay forgot about her arrangement to meet her and then we all ended up going back to sleep again! Eventually when we all were awake, Marica decided she wanted to meet us at 'Dunkin n Donuts' i dont think she understands... and definitely cant speak proper English, but Whitey was in the shower for ages and so we missed her.
Mikay had decided she wanted to go shopping for the day, so when she did, Whitey and i caught the subway to a few shops downtown and then to Times Square! It is pretty incredible and there are so many shops! I could really spen so much money but am still containing myself until we have done all activities....
Whilst we were walking around we caught a first glmipse of the Empire State building, the Chrysler Building and we also ended up in Grand Central Station which is very impressive. I was very excited to be walking around New York and was jumping about and dancing everywhere!
We then ended up coming back to the hostel and made some dinner. Mikay came back shortly after but then went out for food again with Marica as she still hasnt bought anything to make or eat. White and i cant really afford to go out for many meals.....We ended up playing pool for a while before heading off. We went upstairs to get our deposit back for the pool equipment and the recepionist tried to find our passport....'Do you leave a deposit for the table tennis?'.......Yes, yes we did that's why we're standing here holding 2 pool ues and there is clearly a big box of pool balls on the table in front of you....It was a very interesting game of ping pong! uuuuuuuggggggghhh!
Whilst she was gone White and i decided to go and watch some of the Superbowl as today, because that is on in Miami between Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears, it is the biggest day of the American's year! We ended up in the huge ESPN Zone in Times square where we watched Prince at half time and some of the game whilst playing some of the soccer and basketball arcade games....i beat White 20-6 at basketball!
We then were walking through Times Square and saw some weird fat mand jogging in just a Borat type thong!! It was horrible, and after looking in some of the shops we were given a leaflet for a comedy show at the Ha Comedy Club which ended up being hilarious, and we got served!!!
After it had finished we ran through Times Swuare back to the subway as it was just so cold and then went back to the hostel....Mikay has just got back as apparently she went to the cinema.
