Levi: This morning we woke up early and I bought Antie an umbrella at an asian man's shop because it was raining. We ran to the subway at Grand Central Station, we made it to the ferry at Battery Park with 7 minutes to spare. The reason we got up early is because the first ones there would get free tickets to get inside the Statue of Liberty. We made it in time to get tickets for that day. We got some nice warm pretzels. Then we went to the top of the boat and dried off our wet bench. We were sitting motionless when we got closer and closer, we saw Lady Liberty. Probably one of the most exciting moments of our lives! Before we got to the island, the boat almost tipped over because of all the weight. When we finally did get on the island, we went to the gift shop to get our audio tour
. We learned a lot about the Statue of Liberty. Then we took amazing pictures with my amazing camera. Once we were done with our tour, we noticed that Antie had lost the umbrella I had just gotten for her. I was kinda mad but then again, I lost her other one and Joe's backback in a taxi. Then we had a great lunch. I had a hotdog and antie had a veggie sandwich. Still it's probably the best hotdog I've ever tasted in NY. There wasn't a lot to do at the Statue of Liberty but just seeing the symbol of our freedom and hope makes up for all of the trip! Then we shopped for souveniers for some of you fans! When Antie went to look for the umbrella in the lost and found, there was a man that told antie he saw the umbrella at the foot of the Statue of Liberty. So Antie goes around the whole island looking for this one $5 umbrella, while I'm in line for the ferry to Ellis Island and these asian people are trying to cut in front of me. Ellis Island was pretty boring. But we did find a brand new umbrella just lying on the ground. So we just got on the next ship back to New York. Then I got a souvenier for myself. Look at the pictures to see my cool glasses. Me and antie alomost fell while we were on the ferry, it was swaying and tipping! Once we got back to the bay, we went and bought these cool high heel pictures for antie. Then we saw some really cool break dancers; I think I have one of their videos up my sleeve. Then after that, Antie almost had a senior moment, she fell on the stairs going to Starbucks! Then we took a subway to the Empire state Building
. I had a non-senior moment. I found thesubway stop for the Empire state building without knowing where it really was, I just read the subway map and guessed. I was right! Antie was so impressed. We set off to look for the Empire State Building and lost it while we were walking. It was so tall we couldn't see it anymore. When we walked inside the Empire State Building, it looked just like I pictured it from the movie, Elf. Finally we went through security and got to the highest point we could. It was amazing, I could see everything throughout NY and the Bronx. It was very cool but very windy. Then from there I tried to get us a cab for about 30 minutes, I did not succeed. So I had the old fashion style...walk home. We walked 16 blocks and my feet were killing me. Then we got ready to go to Bubba Gumps and to the Blue Man show! At Bubba Gumps, I had popcorn shrimp, it was very good. I got a smoothie and when I took my first drink, the lid was open and the whole thing poured on my pants and shirt. We washed myself up and went on with dinner. When we were done, we tried to get a taxi AGAIN and the taxi driver couldn't find the show we needed to go to so he dropped us off right near it and we had to find it. Once we did find it, we had an awesome show.There were so many lights that make your eyes get so tired. It was funny, crazy, and a little weird. But I think both me and antie liked it more than we thought we would. Everytime they started a new act, they would come up to the crowd and try to get people to come up with them. Almost everytime they came up to me and touched me. I don't know why, maybe because I was wearing blue and because my shirt had buttons that opened easily. I realized my boobies were showing! When we left, there were 3 things that were bad. It was freezing, it was raining, and we couldn't find a cab! I got a little frustrated but antie reminded me AGAIN, I am not a mad New Yorker. I am a nice Californian. It was midnight by this time. We decided to suck it up, get brave, and get on the subway. We saw a lot of Mexicans that looked a lot like Joe. But luckily we didn't get stabbed on the subway that night. Somehow we finally made it home and we had a great rest. Fin!
Monica: Our 4th day was the best day of all! I am so exhausted, I'll write about it soon.
