Day 2 - Times Square

The alarm was blaring at 7 am and I was not ready to get up. Between the time difference and the excitement, I had only gotten about 6 hours of sleep. Definitely not enough to make it through a full day conference. I made my way to the DMA seminar center on Avenue of the America's, just a few blocks from Radio City Music Hall. Spent a full day at one of the best conferences I have been to. The social hour was over at 6pm and I made my way back to the hotel to change.

I spent the rest of the night meandering through Times Square. Between the lights, the ads, the people, the smell, and everything else going on to entice the senses, I ended just walking for hours around the same square of blocks. Each time, I noticed something completely different.

I spent some time in Toys R Us - the two year old inside of me beaming at all the great toys, ferris wheel, dinosaurs, and bright colors. Did a little song and dance in Times Square with an up-and-coming rapper. Took a gander at all the overpriced I Heart the Big Apple nic-nacs, which of course I had to purchase. (I have a soft spot for snowglobes, quite possibly one of the most useless things you can purchase. But, they have little scenes inside a snowy globe and some even play music.) Drooled over yummy chocolates at M&M World.

There isn't a lot I can say about Times Square. Instead, I suppose the photos can do the talking.
