Teresa and I went by ourselves yesterday as we had a day planned for the classic discipline of “daughter shops, mom pays”. 3 hours later Teresa had spent 30$ on one and only one pair of jeans and we were hungry. With a little help from google we found an awesome ramen noodle place where we had some of the best ramen soup ever:
And then we shopped some more. Aka Teresa found one and only one t-shirt she also liked. Well, maybe that pre-shopping trip last week really did do it’s job✌🏻
Today we headed for some culture. On our way to the metropolitan we passed Carlo’s bakeshop from the tv show cakeboss. Teresa used to watch it a lot and was really excited to go. The excitement kind of vaporized as soon as we got into the store:
We were not impressed but Christine insisted on buying some cake to eat in Central Park:
And it was decent and OK, but not a place we would go again.
We chose to go to the Met as Luca has a bigger assignment on the old Egypt coming up, and they have rebuilt a few temples in there:
It was quite impressive and they had a large section of everything from the different dynasties. By the time we finished the Egypt section we felt quite full of museum for the day and headed back into the park, where we met this little guy:
It really puzzles me how this poor naked rodent made it through the winter.
The last stop of the day (after Times Square, the M&M store, a Starbucks, knitty City, and the flying tiger of Copenhagen) was the flower show at Macy’s. Wow. That was truly impressive:
So here we are. With absurdly sore feet and one day left in the big apple. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
Over and out (ouch)
