Why did I stop off in New York on my long way home?? That's kind of a stupid question but I will not hold it against you. Why would I not stop off in New York on my way home? Now that is the question that had been going through my mind while I was travelling around Canada.

While I was so close to New York it would almost be rude not to stop in and say hey to my good buddies Jeff Goldblum and Billy Crudup....what? You've heard of them? Cool. They are nice guys, we go way back. Honest.

On the journey in from the airport, I saw so many things and places that I recognised from the movies and various American tv shows.

Straight after checking into my hostel, the first thing I did was put away the map, I wont have any need for that here.

Me & My Good Mate, Jeff Goldblum...Told You I Knew Him
Out on the sidewalk, the smells and noises hit me. I felt as though I was in the movies. I saw a hotdog stand and straight away I was up to order me a foot long. It was nice. It added to the whole experience.

New York is not just about buildings and parks. It is all about the experience. The atmosphere.

Yo New York,
I hope you are feeling better,
I see that nasty scar is starting
To heal....a little,
I will always pray for your losses,
Stay strong,
You are still the greatest city in the world,
I love you. 

I am most definitely not a city person. There is something in New York that gets under your skin, or maybe it has always been there. New York features in so many tv shows and movies that you really feel at home walking the streets.....

...until the next time....
