Post card from New York

Sister said to me, once we were here in New York, that it is like being slapped in the face, and she was quite correct. I've been to Saigon, Bangkok, London, Amsterdam, Tokyo and more and I have never experienced anything like New York. The crowds, the traffic, the humidity and the make do amazes me. Manhattan where we are may well have something like a day time population of three million plus in just a few square kilometres. It takes some adjusting to cope. You sure know you are alive when you are in New York. Back home late next week, that is leave Monday night, lose a day, collapse into bed Wednesday night.

  1. I am not certain I could make the adjustment. Crowds, traffic and humidity are not things I am comfortable with.
    Make do? More information please.
    And I hope you are having a wonderful, wonderful time.

  2. Ha! On my blog, the pseudonym I use for New York City is City Like No Other. Because really, it is.

    Whenever I visit the city, I need to come home and sleep for a week.

  5. Maybe I'll just stick to the Bronx...

    We're getting that humidity (and heat!) this weekend; I shall curl up in a damp little ball and wilt for all I'm worth... you have my unflagging admiration! A pity you and Mitchell, and your respective dear ones, couldn't get together, Although, being as petty as I am, I'd have to stomp a grape (or something) in a fit of pique for being left out. ;-)

  11. My aunt and uncle lived in NY so it is a city I visited often. You are right - you really know you are alive there. There are always exciting sites that attract cultural, historical and architectural tourists.
