We slept in after being awake until late the night before. We are still adjusting to the new time zone, but I feel like it's getting easier every day. We had an early lunch in a nice cafe and I had the best coffee I have had since being in the states. Chris also tried some New York cheese cake. Then we headed to Rockefella plaza to go ice-skating. I was a little worried about falling over, but found it surprisingly easy to pick up. This was a highlight of the trip so far. It was really fun and very romantic too. We were going to go to Central park afterwards for a picnic, but decided not to as we had a late lunch and it was also a very cold day. So we looked in some shops around Rockefella plaza instead. We went into the Nintendo store, and I have to admit I even found it quite interesting, but Chris loved it
After an incredible dinner we went to see a broadway show- The Lion King. It was fantastic! The set design and costumes were incredible and I love African music. Thanks to Chris it was a really great birthday.
The next day we flew to North Carolina on the smallest plane I've ever been on. We were really happy to get to NC and breath in the fresh air! It is a really great place from what we have seen so far and everyone has been incredibly friendly. Jumbo picked us up from the airport and on our first night we went to a bible study and to church. The service was fantastic and I'm looking forward to making it our home church for a while.
