From there I went to the International Photography Centre. The permanent gallery had some weird stuff but the current exhibit was about the civil rights movement which was very interesting. It's hard to believe that only maybe 30 years ago there was so much racial division and violence. No doubt America still and probably will always have some racial issues, the history is perhaps too terrible for there to ever be full integration and harmony.
I then sat in Times Square and just people watched and filmed the chaos on my camera
At night I returned to Times Square to take night shots with the tripod. If I thought it was crazy during the day, then the night is out of this world. You can barley move but it is quite a site to see all lite up. We then went to Juniors for dinner, I had fired shrimp (prawns) and wish I hadn't. Some things just shouldn't be fired. The shrimp was very tough and chewy, the deep fryer must just be too hot for shrimp. But I left just enough room for what will probably be my last cheesecake. I was full and almost made myself sick and even as I type my stomach is so sore from being so full but my god it was worth. Junior's cheesecake, I shall miss you the most.
But what I will remember most from this night was a couple who sat next to us at the restaurant. They were European, couldn't make out the language, they were in their 30s. After they ordered and handed the menus back they did the weirdest thing I've ever seen. They started to do colouring. They had crayons and all. And it's not like they were taking the piss and laughing, they weren't talking and taking it seriously. WTF is up with that??? Who goes out in New York City on a Friday night at 11pm to a famous restaurant and start colouring in. If they had a kid with them I can understand but I think once you hit double figures in age you really should leave the crayons at home when you go and hit the town, especially a town like New York.
