Today we hit the shops. Clothes clothes everywhere- I was in credit card ecstacy. Fortunately my sense of restraint won out and I didn't spend much at all (we're here for the week so there's plenty of time for that). We checked out all the big stores- Macys, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue etc and then, walking past the Empire State Building decided that while we were in the neighbourhood we should go up to the Observation Deck.
I hate heights.
I REALLY hate heights.
Lawrie was totally fine and was pointing out this and that. I was faring less well, but I was on the Empire State Building and so MADE myself look down at the streets below. In the distance we could see the Statue of Liberty, and decided to go there later in the week.
Sort of roamed aimlessly- when there's so much to see, where do you begin?- but decided we'd have an early one so we could throw ourselves in to it tomorrow. Today was just fun emmersing ourselves in the hubbub and finding out how to get from A to B.
