New York, New York

Friday 22 March, 1.30am New York time

A cool building in New York

I’m back at the airport after an exciting and seemingly surreal evening in New York. I still can’t quite believe I got to see NYC! So this whole not-getting-on-the-flight business was all for one reason: making a stop in the Big Apple. Well, I made the most of it.

I took the subway to Manhattan, which made me miss the Tube a bit. The London Underground map is definitely far more superior than what they came up with over here. I tried to figure out the stops on the R trains from Queens Plaza to 28th Street and, to say the least, it took a while. Fortunately, Sarah had sent proper instructions or I would have been a German girl lost in New York.

I met up with Sarah in a trendy bar, which had Sex and the City written all over it. We didn’t stay for long. After a short trip to Sarah’s hotel (the Hilton – only the best for the princess!), we walked quite a few blocks and climbed into the lift of the Empire State Building. What a view! I guess I’m stating the obvious, but New York at night is beautiful! We stayed as long as the icy winds allowed and walked back, making a quick stop to stick our noses into Grand Central Station and eating a proper New York hotdog, before I left Sarah to her cosy bed and caught a yellow cab back to the airport.

I’ve been up for 24 hours now and I can feel it. It’s just coming up to 10pm in Seattle, so I reckon it’s okay now to get a bit of sleep before the gates open. So, night night for now. Let’s see if I can make it to Seattle before Chad and the other peeps go on stage.

Oh, and did I mention they lost my luggage?
