New York has just jumped first place as my favorite city. Definitely better than Vegas. Definitely much better than Singapore.
Upon arriving in JFK airport, I've been welcomed with open arms. I didn't feel disconcerted nor lost. Without having to research how to go about, with only my hostel's address at hand, I was able to find my way.
The air is electrifying. Aside from the timezone difference with LA by 3 hours, its the atmosphere, the energy of the city pumping through my veins. I've fallen in love with New York. But I love someone more now to actually go and explore the idea of working in New York. Who knows, maybe down the line with the two of us?
There's so many things to see and absorb! My five days is surely not enough. My exploration has mostly been cultural and sights. No club hopping or getting wasted. For one thing, I'm alone and I'm being responsible. Maybe with CP if and when we go...
New York...new York...I love how its such a modern city, but mixes in so well with the antiquated (architecture, etc) and the dirt and the grime (in subway, and streets) provide the place with character. It's not like Singapore that feels squeaky clean it almost feels manufactured.
