Cheese steaks and New York.

sunny

Hi all, the journey to Philadelphia was a long one. The city wad fairly empty as it was a Labour day weekend. We only had 2 hours. I saw the liberty bell. Wandered around Philly and had a part of a Philly Cheese steak in Ginos yum. Next stop New York. The last stop but amazing view of the skyline on the way into new york. It was sad to say goodbye to everyone. Luckily my hostel was only a few blocks away by yellow taxi cab . Hostel was nice 300 rooms massive. Reception gave my a map. Which showed me where the nearest grocery store was was and recommended I stick yo main street. I was in midtown Manhattan so not dangerous . But fairly quiet for new york almost empty streets. But when you looked up all you could see were sky scrapers. Next day made my way to fifth avenue only a few blocks walk away . Took my ages to get there as I kept on stopping to take photos.some women called my over. So asked me whether why I walking that way. I Said what way. " oh is that the way you normally walk , God bless you child"' it was by far the weirdest conversation I had. I quickly moved on. It was weird.I only had a few hours in NYC . So I wandered around had lunch went shopping in Sephora and Barnes and nobles. The shuttle was only an hour to JFK. But the plane was running late so I lot of hanging around. After a long flight I made it back to Heathrow across London and to bristol. Where I ended my epic journey.
