Learning the New York Way of Life
First off, I would like to thank all the people who helped me out with my ballet. I really appreciate what you have done and am glad I made the choice to come here. When I arrived it looked just like Seattle, gray sky with clouds and rain. But when I got out a little more, it is almost like a whole different world. My first impressions of New York is that it is boisterous, bustling, diverse and colorful. Something new I learned, was that they fine you for honking. I love New York City but I don't think I would like to live here. So far I have gone to the Statue of Liberty, World Trade Center, Wall street, Times Square and the Freed store for a point shoe fitting. I have got to experience the culture of New York... the taxis, subways, buying food off the street carts and getting a haircut in a place that looks like the mafia came through! It was super cool seeing the Statue of Liberty and going on the pedestal of the statue... even though I found out on the subway ride to there, that I forgot the battery to our camera.=) Thank goodness for cell phones! I can't wait for my check in at SAB tomorrow and see what fun that brings me.
