New York – Days 6,7 and 8

August 24, 2013

Days on Manhattan flew by in a second and I’m writing this post from home in Helsinki. The jet lag is awful and I miss New York terribly, but I have to make some serious decisions, so I need some time away from everything and inside my 4 walls to think about my future. All I know for sure is that New York became my home in only 8 days and I have never felt more happy or welcomed in any other place I’ve been at/ lived at.

Day 6 kicked off with power breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien and continued at Natural history museum. The museum was such a special experience. The most beautiful museum I’ve ever been to which definitely takes your breath away with everything that’s on the display, from the taxidermy, history of humankind, all the tribes andΒ similar.

Since we were right next door to Central Park we have decided to take a carriage ride through it. It was very nice and peaceful ride, but I still think that 70 dollars for 20 min. ride was bit too much.

After that we went to Union Square to check what’s the vibe over there and to grab something to eat at Maoz vegetarian, very small restaurant which serves the most delicious falafel and hummus ever! For desert we went to Vive La Crepe cafe which was very nearby Maoz and had the most delicious pancakes in the city.

With our bellies being so full, we decided to walk for 26 blocks and have stopped couple of times on the way back to the hotel to do some small shopping.

Day 7 kicked off in the same way as every day and continued with the ride to West Village. It was a rainy day so we’ve decided to make it nicer by going back to Magnolia bakery on Bleecker St. where I had the most delicious banana pudding in my life. Oh wow… I was so impressed! We’ve continued our trip with some small shopping and soon after, it was the time to go grab lunch and this time we went to Daniel’s bagels, one of the top 5 places in the city to get a proper NY style bagel. Do I have to say that the bagel I had was super delish? πŸ™‚

Afternoon and evening were absolutely the best moments in my life. I’ve got all dressed up and ready for my very 1st appearance in New York art scene. I have exhibited 7 of my fine art photographs at Agora gallery and I simply can’t put it in the words how happy, overwhelmed, proud and inspired I felt. I couldn’t even dream to get such an amazing response on my works and that definitely warmed my heart and filled my soul πŸ™‚

Day 8 was last minute shopping/ sightseeing and travelling day.

New York, just wait for me, I’m back next year and so ready to ROCK! πŸ™‚
