Tara's Travels travel blog

Well, I've made it to New York! I arrived late last night - I caught a shuttle bus from the airport to my hostel - I had a really nice driver who even drove through times square so I could see it at night. It is so bright! There would have to be about 20 tv screens all showing different news channels - the big news at the moment being ex-president Ronald Regan's death. I have my own room in the hostel - though it is tiny - smaller than any of the cells we saw at Alcatraz! Basically a bit of space beside the bed to let you get in and a narrow single bed and that's it - I felt really claustrophobic in it last night but by this morning I was relishing having my own space :)

Today I've caught the subway into the Times square area and am just wandering around - I've bought 2 pairs of shoes already though am not sure how they're going to fit in my backpack - I'll need them in London though and they were really nice :) It's pouring rain outside so I've just been wandering between shops - am thinking of going to see Shrek 2 as it's a nice indoor activity. It's meant to be fine for the rest of the week so I can do my sightseeing then :)
