Where I stayed
We got the the bus station thinking we are early (we arrived at 6:50am fro a 7:15 departure). There were enough people before us to fill a whole bus up. Luckily for us - a number of buses were leaving ensuring we had our spots.
Because no other sane people were on the road this early we got to our destination earlier than anticipated - around 8am. I had to be mentally prepared for this as there are something like 220 shops here.
Anyway - all went well (I was surviving) up until lunch time. Mattias fell asleep then too - at least I am teaching him well - to dislike shopping and that shopping is boring. :-)
While we were having lunch the snow started falling! Yay! All the freezing weather was not in vain - we saw snow
Luckily for all of us, Roxy agreed and we went back to the bus station to catch the next bus to our hotel room. The roads were already having a layer of snow and the traffic started slowing down fast.
I reckon if we would have stayed longer, we might have gotten stuck.
Once we got back we dropped off the purchases in our room and went to buy myself a new shaver. Roxy is never happy with my shaves and I keep on blaming the shaver. Now I had no more exuses - I got the shave and to my relief the new shaver results in a much closer shave. I am a very happy customer right now.
Final stop for the day was at Macy's - what a full and utter chaos. This department store is massive (the largest Macy's in the world) but the amount of people in there is just plain ridiculous. We waited for about 30 minutes for our turn at the cashier. There was also a line up at Men's toilets - it was unbelievable. Apparently it's what we call Boxing Day sales in Australia.
After having some dinner we finally went to our hotel room for some much needed rest.
Just for the record, on the way to the hotel, outside were blizzard like conditions, with snow and huge winds. I wander what this will bring - considering we are planning to leave back to Australia tomorrow??? Another few days in New York wouldn't be too bad. ;-)
PS. Sorry no photos for today. I had no capacity to carry my camera with me due to being my wife's personal caddy. :D
PS 1. Because my hubby helped with all the shopping bags I took some photos with my phone.
