Oh why hello there
So our class (c class) and e class, traveled to NYC so I am going write my experience there. We were in NYC for about four days. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Manhatten, 6th Ave/Chelsea, 125 W 26th street. The rooms were not really big, but we were only sleeping there so it was alright. Expect the part were you could not lock your toilet door, or it might be that we were to stupid find out how to lock it.
We got breakfast at the hotel that was good, for like two days then boring. You could get egg, bacon, sausage, potatoes, some fruits and some pastries. Everything tasted good and all, but I got sick of it after two days. Because of that I ended up not eating breakfast the two next days.
So the first day Monday the 25th of April we went to the UN, which was pretty cool. Especially the art work they had there and the different kind of objects they got form different countries. An other cool thing was a UN stamp you could get on your passport, which is exclusive.
After that, we went to the “American Museum of Natural History”. We saw a movie about the galaxy and how there is a lot more to discover out there. After that we went and looked at dinosaurs. That was cool and all, nothing really exiting. Just dead dinosaurs would have been much more exiting if they were alive to be honest
After that we got some free time from 15.30 to 21.00, so about five hours and thirty minutes to random things. We went and shopped as every other tourist does I did not buy a lot so It was kind of a bummer.
Next day Tuesday the 26th of April we went to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. It was pretty interesting to get to know all the details about what happened and how that affected the country. It was quit interesting.
We went to the Statue of Liberty after that, we did not go inside of the statue which is quite sad, but we went around it and enjoyed the view from the island.
We also went to Ellis Island, when we arrived there we watched a documentary straight away, that explained how people had it when they emigrated to the US, and all the hardships that they went trough, we did not watch the rest of the museum because it was like thirty minutes until it closed after we watched that documentary. Neither the less it was quite interesting.
We were supposed to walk the Brooklyn bridge, but since the weather was bad we did not walk over the bridge and we got free time form five to nine. Nine a clock was our curfew so it was until nine a clock everyday. And again we went shopping I actually bought some clothes this time and was pretty happy about it.
Wednesday the 27th we went to the Bronx Zoo and saw a bunch of animals. It was really crowded because of spring break so it was kind of stressful in a way, but the guide we had was really cool and explained a lot. We then headed to Central Park and were there for like thirty minutes. Some of us stayed I think, but I left. We had free time from that time. I did not buy anything because I got a headache and decided to head back to the hotel.
Thursday the 28th the last day we decided to go on a Mafia-tour. The tour guide explained how big the mafia was and how much impact they had on US, which was really cool to know, because of the Mafia movies out there. After that we got free time. Me and a other student went trough Chinatown and Little Italy, because she wanted to got to a store.
Because of time limit I decided to head to Korea Town. As a person that listens to K-pop and likes food. I Spent like two hours there just roaming and buying random things. I bought four albums and some skin care products. I also bought lunch, some spicy ddeokbokki and some kimbap. After that I found my friends again and we decided to eat some Korean food.
We went to a Korean-bbq restaurant, but ended up buying bibimbap instead, because we decided to go for something random. Either way that was really good, at least in my opinion. Then we headed to the airport and went home.
The trip was fun and all, but I wish we had more time. Since we had to be three people together we really could not do what we wanted to. Which was a bummer for me, but I understand why we had to.
