day 2

Wasn’t able to sleep the first night despite extreme exhaustion from the very long travel. Feeling sick. Had to literally drag myself to the shower. I had to make it to the 12:00nn boat ride at the Circle Line Tour. Locating the place was already an adventure. 

The cruise down the hudson up to the east river gives an awesome sight of the grandeur of mid and lower manhattan. You will see the architectural growth of the city, the skyscrapers, the statue of liberty that i only see in movies and on tv. And going under the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges was absolutely breathtaking! I was fortunate to be able to take some good shots. My hands were shivering and simply pressing the button was a herculean task.

 All worth it! It was a sureal and mindblowing experience despite the freezing temperature!

And then i had to go back to being sick again making me miss my evening valentine date:)

gigantic time machine! It will take you back in time when things were done in the highest level of craftsmanship. Where multitalented people meticulously worked on their masterpieces for a long period of time. It is sad to think that we don’t do things the way they use to nowadays. 

Also the tour gives you a glimpse of the lives of some of the important personalities in art  history. It gives you an overview of the evolution of art, religion and society.

Overall the Metropolitan museum experience was simply magical, enlightening and inspiring!

On top of the world mom!

My deepest gratitude to apexart for making my dreams come true.  Being able to go to a lot of places and meet all kinds of people and experience all this things in a very short period of time. I mean, it’s like i have gained as much as the earlier 40 years of my life. Not really! hehe:) But my mother must be really proud of me for reaching the heights that King Kong had :)!
