Most business trips are not worth blogging about but Em thought New York City must be.... Although the jetlag and all day meetings in a windowless room are really tiring, I totally love it. The little non working time I have, I spend just walking around and getting lost. I am staying in Midtown and very surprised that most attractions are in walking distance. However, considering that I am now very exhausted after walking from midtown all the way to Brooklyn and back, maybe I should have taken a cab or the subway. Anyway, I did take a cab yesterday and it’s not easy to flag one down, it took a good 20 minutes until somebody stopped...
Friday evening I managed to pop into MoMa after work and it was worth it especially as it is for free Friday evening - a lot of fantastic paintings and my favourite was Frida and the mirror. I haven't done any shopping yet as I mainly was admiring the architecture. Yesterday, I made it to Macys and Time Square but I prefer Downtown. Being here on my own, it means I also have to eat on my own. I am quite good at
having breakfast and lunches on my own but having dinner always feels weird. So I asked my sis, who was living in NY for a while 'Where can a lady go for dinner on her own and not feel uncomfortable?'. Her answer, although very true but rather unhelpful was ' as far as I can remember a WOMAN can dine on her own everywhere...’. So, I decided to follow her advice and had dinner downtown on my own. Now, it’s time for a last walk and then back to London.
