The Big Apple!

A journal entry from: East is East

Andrea and I hitchiked, craigslisted and bussed our way down to New York from Montreal, via a quick stop in Vermont at the Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory, and Boston. I slept through the whole thing, but Andrea tells me the bus ride was one of the scariest experiences of our life.

We stayed with friends we met through couchsurfers.com, and they set us up with a comfy couch in Manhattan.

From there, we did day adventures to MOMA, Central Park, a Sex in the City Tour, comedy shows, concerts, shopping, the Rockafeller Center, the UN, Times Square, and about a million other places. I think we walked 1000 km a day.... at least it felt like it.

What an amazing city, there was so much energy there...it felt electric.
