          ... contort and wrap your legs around a rail. So we were 2 hobos who went to sleep on park benches in the middle of Manhattan for an hour or so. Feeling a little refreshed we kept up Alau's tour. We walked over the Manhattan Bridge, then several nearby streets and finally caught a ferry back to near the hostel for a well earned afternoon siesta. After having dinner with Alau's friend, we walked to Times Square. Wow, so much light and so many people! I ...

          ... I saw Goldie Hawn eating at a restaurant along Ocean Blvd.

          On Saturday, we slept in! Then we walked down to the pier/beach after making our way to what has become "our Starbucks" aka "The Kube" -named after the study area at Claremont McKenna.

So it was pretty easy and quick. Our bags were one of the first to come off the carousel and we hopped in a taxi to our destination. It was only last weekend when we were in Auckland that we looked at accommodation for a few days here. We looked on the airbnb website and there's lots of ...

          ... new round. The exercises went from easy to quite though. Everything on my hands felt nearly i possible as I just don't have too much strength there. I felt like i could do better, as I usually have quite a lot of discipline and strength to do all the repetitions, but this time around it just wasn't working that well.
