After emerging bright and early from our pod, me and Nik headed out to Trump Towers for a coffee at Donald Trump's luxurious workplace ( at the Starbucks in that building).
We then had a casual wander around Central Park during the day. It was so beautiful and snowy and there were squirrels everywhere and lots of horse-drawn carts roaming around. We had a quick browse around the city and went and looked at Madison Square Garden before we had to meet Nik's kids at the train station (they had stayed at their great-grandma's place for the night while we went to the Pod Hotel for the night).
 We all made our way by NY cab (which was fun) to Jekyll and Hyde's restaurant for lunch. This was a fun horror themed restaurant with amusing animated monsters that came to life while you ate your food. We had planned to visit the Statue of Liberty but ended up just looking around the shops and checking out Times Square again until dark. We saw the Toys R Us store which had a ferris wheel inside and went to the HBO store where I bought some very cool True Blood merch.
As we were about to head back to Grams house, we were asked if we wanted to audition for a Special K commercial to be shown on American TV. It was a bit of a laugh. We were given a free box of Special K with strawberry and had to fill in a speech bubble on the back of the box. The question related to losing weight by eating Special K. 'What will you gain when you lose?'
My answer was 'A mother who complains that I am too thin'. They took polaroids and we signed a release form for these to be used. Will put that photo on Facebook sometime when I get home. Was pretty amusing.
After getting the train back to Grams place, we grabbed Wendys for tea, had a few bourbon and Dr. Peppers (well I did anyway) and now we need to rest for another big day tomorrow where we will hopefully get to the Empire State Buiding and the Statue of Liberty.
