Left the hostel at 10:00 with my roommate, and first thing we did; he showed me a supermarket where I can buy food cheaply. Here I can get my breakfast for the next few days.
※1 ride is about $3.
We headed to Manhattan, and he wanted to visit the Museum of Math so from there we each went our own separate ways.
Since I’m going to be in NYC for 3 days, I decided today to just walk around the city.
Its funny, there’s a place in Tokyo with the same name(midtown). It has the same vibe, I guess they took the idea from here.
・Nintendo Shop: The only official Nintendo shop in the world. Wonder why there isn’t one in Japan.
I was tempted to buy the Nintendo Switch, specially after watching this guy playing on that huge screen.
・Times Square: Apparently there’s this thing, “Yoga Day” once a year. And it happened to be this day.
But the ticket was $340!!??
It took me 3 hours walking to get from one extreme to the other.
People playing music, drawing and selling art, doing puppet shows(↑), doing exercise, lying down on the grass reading, walking their dog.
But I got there and found this…
I have no idea how much I walked this day, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to affect my legs tomorrow.
wish I had one of those devices that counts your steps
