Weekend in New York

19 Oct 2013 (Sat), overcast, 10-17 deg C.
DH skipped some optional modules and we spent the weekend sight-seeing New York via the fastest way - taking the bus.  The agents were all over the streets!
The weather wasn't exactly very cold, but I wasn't prepared for it and didn't have the appropriate jackets.

Colours on the trees hadn't quite changed yet, according to Nina, it would change only the next month. So glad I went Connecticut first!  Two very different worlds, not just the colours.

And the 3rd loop.

Getting dark and getting colder!
Colourful M&M World at Times Square!  You could personalise the M&Ms too, but they aren't cheap. 

20 Oct 2013 (Sun), sunny, 10-17 deg C.
How can we miss weekend flea markets?  We didn't pick up anything though, but discovered different flavours of s'mores, toasted to order.

We were lucky that the United States federal government shutdown ended barely a few days ago and we were able to visit the Statue of Liberty!
Walking around Chinatown and Little Italy in the late afternoon.

And we went on a night bus tour.  Bought some snacks and drinks back the hotel.

I'm exhausted! Even when I was younger, I didn't have that kind of energy to travel so far from home and then take all those whirlwind tours! It's like looking at a tour guide book! And those little side trips you did alone made me really nervous! I never could have done that! I'm so glad you made it back to your hotels safely!

These collages will be a great remembrance of your trip! New York and Connecticut had a rather rugged winter, so it's good you visited in the Fall!

Thanks so much for sharing your adventures! It was fun 'traveling around' with you!

Hi Kathy, it was a rare trip for me to travel so far to USA, so I must make the best of it! I like to challenge myself to try new things and to overcome any fear. The trip was really a great experience!
