Last Night in NY

OH MY i cant even recall what I've been doing the last 3 days.

SATURDAY was an insane day. starting at 5 am, we camped out in Central Park to get tickets to see Twelfth Night, Shakespeare in the Park. The tickets were free, but we spent all day waiting in a line...the box office doesn't actually open until 1 pm! Keiko and i carried all the blankets and pillows we brought with us back to the house and ate a lovely meal in SoHo. I seriously had a HUGE flatbread sandwich and a roll of sushi all by myself. I was SO hungry. waited until 5 pm to eat anything all day. Picked Eric up from work and walked to the subway-->to Central Park. it started raining so hard on our walk to the subway but the sun was shining so bright it seemed like a surreal movie scene.
Shakespeare in the park was amazing. It was pretty awesome seeing Anne Hathaway performing a play right in front of me :) The entire cast made the play really entertaining and the show was hilarious.

SUNDAY we took it easy... walked around washington square park, ate mexican food in west village; the service was terrible but the food was good....and they don't give re-fills here!!!! WTF! Passed by NYU and had gluten free cupcakes at Keiko's obsession, Babycakes. Then we walked across the Williamsburg bridge and hopped on a subway back to the apartment. Got some champagne and ice cream and enjoyed while watching episode after episode of heroes until 5am.

MONDAY we went to the Guggenheim Museum and were in awe of Frank Lloyd Wright's amazing architecture works. There was also an amazing collection of Kandinsky and a few others. I made note of some awesome works that i want to find online :) After the museum, we took the subway to Madison Square Park where there is the most amazing Burger Joint ever in the world. Im sure of it. Shake Shack has the most amazing Shack Burger and Cheese Fries ever accompanied by an Arnold Palmer refreshment. I couldn't stand to leave a single bite or crumb behind. I was so satisfied. Met this really cute dog and she was the sweetest thing ever. Most of the dogs here I find are the most friendliest dogs ever. Got some red wine at Union Square and made our way back home. Just finished watching the movie Fido. Pretty funny zombie movie. I'm pretty tired and tomorrow ill be able to rest either on the plane or after i land :)

tomorrow i leave :( i miss home though. so glad i got to spend time with my best friend. This week was VERY well documented thanks to my amazing new camera! <3
