Trying to be the perfect tourist

Where shall I go?So much to see!

Today was a glorious day! I couldn’t believe the weather. This morning, I went to Liberty Island (didn’t go up the statue, as I hadn’t booked ahead of time, just went round the island) and to Ellis Island. The last time I came to NYC, Ellis Island museum didn’t exist. I found it quite interesting and moving. I went through the different exhibits and watched a short movie very well presented, quite moving too.
After a quick lunch, I got back to Battery Park and walked around for a while.
Then, as programmed I tried to get to Greenwood cemetery. I followed the instructions given by a very helpful lady, but got mistaken between uptown and downtown or is it midtown? Anyway, I found myself on Broadway, which wasn’t what I had in mind originally. Didn’t I tell you I had no sense of direction?
Went back to the right subway stop, but that took forever, the cemetery closes at four o’clock and I got there at quarter past three.
I am definitely going back tomorrow morning, weather permitting.
I got back to my room and rested some (the life of a tourist is soooo tiring), then decided that I should go to Times Square to take a few pics. I am not crazy about going out on my own at night, but thought that this was something I should do, being a big girl now 😉
So I did and guess what, when I got there, I got my camera out and realised I had forgotten the memory card at the hotel.
A Freudian lapse? Maybe.
I am keeping my fingers crossed, hoping that the weather will be as clement tomorrow as it was today.

  1. Wow, you’re actually here on this side of the ocean! Hope you have more of a great time and wishing you wonderful weather to see it all!

  2. Sounds like you’re having a great time, Claude! But you’re braver than I am….out there alone at night in Manhattan? Hmmm…nope, don’t think I’d do that.
    Now Paris….that would be another story. I always felt safe there.
