I don't about losing track of reality Ray - I'm certainly knackered after walking 12km+ and a 4hr Harlem bus tour on top - we'd a great guide, very informative and entertaining. It included a 1hr stop at a church where we understood we'd hear a gospel choir along the lines of the one that sang at Harry n Megan's wedding. Not quite!! It wasn't a choir as such but it was very loud, very shouty and very repetitive, the same couple of lines over and over. The regular congregation got very involved tho with one man really going some with what my daughter described as the funky chicken dance. A bit of a disappointment for us but it certainly spoke to many people.
I'm really enjoying just wandering about the city, taking in the amazing buildings, both old and new. We did part of the High line today, saw the boats plying the Hudson River and the helicopter ferrying people over. Saw the new attraction, the Vessel, which has 2,500 steps. I'm glad we didn't have a go - I'd have never made it back to the hotel!
We had an early coffee and cookie and nearly needed a stiff drink at the cost! Prices here apparently don't include taxes (nor tips of course) so you end up paying considerably more than you thought. But we've taken the attitude of Oh well, that's NY! I had the best pizza ever in Don Giovanni's. And we saw Bon Jovi and wife walk past the window! So my daughter's day, month and year were made! I did see them but thought it was 2 women 😂
Geoff - I'm just getting in practice! Dublin does customs clearance at that side of the pond so makes arrival a lot easier.
We didn't see any guitar behind the bar Barry - maybe they learned their lesson after your escapade!!
