... half a mile to go and with just the maze of manhattan's midtown area to traverse, the satnav had a hissy fit. It had no idea of where we were or what we were doing, which was quite fitting as neither did we! Luckily the satnav righted itself long enough to divert itself to the correct connecting street - which was closed. We finally arrived at the Hilton about 9.15, set our bags down then went for a walk around Times Square. Exhausted, we went back to our room and crashed out. Over and ...
... was priceless as the lift doors closed. Off we ventured and endomondo tracked our walk ... Too good. Sports field built on the side of the river - luv it - no space build it on the water. Met a lovely lady and her dog Jet when we were walking along the Hudson River. Missing our puppy dogs. Found a gorgeous park with a squirrel - teardrop park. Found foodie heaven and bought soup and salad .... Tiff beside herself she got her rice cakes and creamed cheese. Pinch me .... ...

We arrive at the vast lobby and down onto 7th Avenue. Cathy has ...
Up at 8:30 feeling great! Poor Mim was awake at 3am again but not for as long. I headed out to Starbucks for the morning fix, plus picked up some sunscreen then to the deli for some yoghurt!
Back to the hotel and then Mim and I headed to the subway, 1 stop to the Brooklyn bridge.

... almost black holes in the ground. Very impressive.
After my visit to Ground Zero, I went to Times Square. I wanted to 'score' a ticket to a show. I was a bit early, so I got in line. I have stood there for 40 minutes, and it was hot! But it was worth it.
I bought a ticket for Rocky. And after I saw it, I was speechless. Stage Entertainment (as in Joop v/d Ende) has done it again. A great show! At some point it's even as if you're at a boxing match.
