Tweed, Quilted and Suede

Going to Central Park meant not overdressing. Ok, perhaps I was still overdressed but question is, when am I not? The most casual outfit that I packed was composed of a cotton t-shirt and shorts.

Day 4: Typical Tourists

Our morning started a little later than usual because our bodies needed a little more energizing. After finding dislike and inconvenience in using public transit, we decided to drive down to New York and find a parking spot close to our adventuring. Not only was this more efficient, it was surprisingly cheaper.
SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESCentral Park was our first stop. I did not expect it to be as lively as it was: many people were exercising, tourists were lured into riding bicycles or carriages, vendors were in every corner and there was all kinds of performers. As a former viewer of CSI NY, I made a joke that there must be a crime scene somewhere in the park and sure enough, I found one. Let’s pretend it’s real.

On the benches, there were messages engraved in metal plates. I was very fond of these two. Adorable, are they not?

Walking around Central Park for a couple of hours depleted our energies. We grabbed lunch soon after and without surprise, ate Middle Eastern food. It was very tasteful but the portions were too big for our stomachs.

Being outdoors for the majority of the day, we decided to finish it by going shopping. We took transit down to 34th St. from 59th as to not waste our paid parking. Claiming to be the biggest Macy’s store, we decided to check it out. It was indeed enormous! However, it was very crowded as if one was in a fish market: loud and packed. Having spent too much time inside gave me a headache.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESCentral Park’s peacefulness from the honking cars and traffic was a good way to spend the morning. It definitely reminded me of my jogs around Waterfront and Stanley Park in Vancouver. Oh how I miss my second home!
