Welcome to Busy New York!
Another day of walking walking walking.
Same distance as the day before, but in the other direction!
You do see the sights when you pound the pavements, don’t you!
Here’s a new idea.
A city coach tour, where you sit sideways
and stop to listen to musicians and entertainers who are strategically placed around town.
Here we saw an Opera Singer and a Sax player.
I photo-bombed them so I could show you the audience in the bus!
Then we strolled throughCentral park.
Amazing performers everywhere you go.
A group of amazing black kids put on a pretty fantastic show.
Very very good.
Boating was called off due to the rain,
but it was ok.
We walked and talked, talked and walked….
through the park
Until we got fed up with the drizzle and retreated to a mall.
or should I say maul ?!?!?
Grace!!! Stop poking fun!
What can you do in a city when the weather is off?
Very cool Mural on one of my favourite shops…
In the evening Grace got complimentary tickets to a blues gig at the BBKing Club.
She certainly knows her way round town…
This guy played with Bruce Springsteen apparently…
certainly sounded like him!
And then, as if we weren’t knackered enough,
we set the alarm to wake up at 4am,
so we could get tickets for Glastonbury.
Here you see the Ticket office open for business
and all set to GO!!!
Couldn’t let the side down in England.
There were about 20 of us trying for each other.
Last year 180,000 tickets sold out in 28 minutes.
At minute 20 this morning one of the guys got in for our group.
Leonie scored for her group and the third group got in too!
We all got tickets this year!!!
But now we’re in New York.
What a lucky girl I am.
Love and hugs,
