I had a lovely long sleep in this morning. We finally headed out around lunch time and caught a bus to Chinatown for some food. We managed to get some photos printed up in a pharmacy. I also got a revlon colourstay lipstick there for $5. I pay at least $20 at home. I think I'll have to head back for more.
Chinatown is very much like Hong Kong. Lots of interesting shops, but mostly all selling the same sort of thing. I got pretty annoyed in one shop however, when the shop keeper basically made us leave because we had a pram. i made a comment on the way out about spending my money with someone else. I was quite angry about it really. It was quite a big shop, we were not in anyone's way. How do they expect to make any money if they treat people badly.
We ended up in Little Italy which has lots of really great restaurants, and found a playground for Kyan to have a little play. he loves to slide. he has started going down on his tummy feet first.
We've been noticing how much people love Kyan. he always manages to get someone to talk to or play with him on the subway. People in elevators talk to him. people walking in teh street smile at him. It's quite incredible. We know he's cute, but he's never attracted so much attention before. Of course, he loves it and performs like you wouldn't believe. he is becoming quite a show off.
The photos are from central park zoo last week. The polar bear was my favourite. He was enormous. Kyan loved the sea lions. We got some good photos of them at feeding time.
Here are some random observations of New York.(no particular order)
*It is ginormous.
*People are generally friendly. Someone will always help with the pram.
*There are way too many stairs in teh subway.
*Coke here tastes different because they use a different sugar.
*People will blow their horn as soon as the light changes, even if the person in front isn't too slow.
*It is only a matter of time until I get run over because the traffic is coming from the wrong direction.
Michael just arrived back with the biggest pizza I have ever seen, so I better go and eat some.
P.S. Kerri, thanks for dropping by, I'll email you soon.
