I had always planned to use the first day in New York to just figure it out,
to wander about the neighbourhood and work out what is what.
Today I walked about for the best part of five hours
and brought these items.
I drank two Starbucks coffees, ate a hot dog
(first item off the list)
and a banana.
It was much harder than you might think to find food to eat.
There are eating places EVERYWHERE
but they are all unfamiliar and so it is hard to know how to make a good decision.
However I have learned some things today and that will make it heaps easier
for another day! For example, a pharmacy sells all sorts of things.
I found breakfast cereal, two toy cars for Reuben
and a phone cable there.
I have never seen so much pre-prepared food in my life.
And it seems all of it is sold by the pound.
How much is a pound anyway?
And how much is a pound of pizza?? It's anybodies guess.
However I did buy some delicious ribs for my dinner by the pound,
that is definitely a win.
This is a deli, we could call it a Dairy or a corner store.
They sell an amazing collection of junk food.
I've walked enough for today,
so I'm going to watch a movie on Netflix and have an early night.
Tomorrow I'm going to figure the mysteries of the subway.
Wish me luck.
