Today was one of those days where we though we might as well have stayed at home since nothing went quite right for most of the day. First up things went ok, we managed to get another ticket for Mama Mia! This time for Es and thankfully it was right next to us which was lucky. We decided to go see the Green Lady but on making our was there we found the queue was 2 hour plus just to get tickets. After a brief consultation we decided we were not going to queue for over two hours just to get on a ferry and see the Green Lady a little closer. Particularly since we’d already seen it.
We started walking back rather than take the subway again and stopped in a little cafe in Soho for lunch. Now it was nice I will give them that but it was the most expensive sandwich I’ve ever had in my life. We continued walking after lunch this time for sweets at Max’s place. After all we couldn’t leave New York City without having a chocolate hit one more time.
In the afternoon we re-gathered and decided we’d try and go to see the UN since we’d heard they allow tours through the building. So off we walked, we decided we needed to walk off the chocolate, and we found the UN. Walking up we noticed people streaming out of the building and a whole heap of people outside. In true form for our day the UN as luck would have it decided to hold a fire drill. So we stood, waited, then waited some more along with a host of others outside. In the end we gave up. It was after the time that the last tour normally starts and they were still only letting the workers go back inside.
Not having achieved much we met up with Es and went to see her apartment. Now its small. Its very small but as Es says its home and it is right in Manhattan.
Dinner that night was with the whole gang and we firstly went out to have drinks. Being a Friday it took a little time to find a place that had a table but eventually persistence paid off. Then dinner after as one does.
So that was the day…
