New York

Day 4

rain 15 °C

Rain rain rain!

A perfect day for the museums! We headed to the New York Museum of Natural History, and ended up spending half the day there! I think everybody else had the same idea too as it was packed! Lots of animals and critters to be seen, as well as a realy cool dinosaur hall, with a T-Rex skeleton.

After that we caught a subway into town, where we found an Irish bar showing the football, and we caught the last 15 mins or so. The 'soccer' seems very popular over here, as it was mostly americans in the bar watching it.

By the time the football was over the rain had finally stopped and we decided to head to Chinatown for tea, via Little Italy, which is almost totally enguled by Chinatown, for an italian beer. Chinatown is the second largest in the states, and the spine of it is made up of one central street with many branches. We had heard that a street called Mott St was good for food, so we headed there, and looked for the restaurant that was fullest, not with tourists, but with chinese people! The place we finally chose was unbelievable. Excellent seafood, and cheap, which is a real bonus in New York! Bobby and June would be so proud of us using our chopsticks like locals!!!

We were so full from the chinese experience that we decided just to head back to Brooklyn and have a lie down! We've decided to get up early tomorrow and hopefully go and catch President Obama's speech from the World Trade Center site.

(not many photos due to the rain!!!)

Night all xx

Hi folks!! Good to see you are using the old chop sticks. Weather still good here so that's good for Clare and Johnny's wedding tomorrow (Friday).
