Out in NY

First days in New York. We have spent quite a lot of time buying stuff for the house. Then on Saturday big plans to go out and have a walk in downtown. And here comes the rain. Never seen all that water coming from the sky. Only in the movies maybe. And I remember at that time i thought "it can be like that, it's clear that is a fake rain created on the movie set". Unfortunately i have to admit that it's all true! The two typical things that you can see on the streets of new york are frames of bycicles chained to poles and broken umbrellas. Plenty of them. At evey corner you see trash bins full of umbrellas. It seem the cemetery of the umbrellas. I think that reason is that in this grand canyon of buildings the wind blows following the direction of the streets and everytime people turns a corner they are not prepared to change the orientation of the umbrella accordingly to the wind. And it breaks. Everything it's big here. Rain, cars, trucks, food packaging. It seems to be back to childhood, when you are 4 or 5 and you have to climb to sit on the chair, hold the class with two hands and jump to watch yourself at the mirrorin the bathroom. Look at this yougurt and spoon! I think they are taking "the big apple" too literally. In these days noellie is in town and so we are discovering New York nightlife with her and Casey! Tonight we have planned to go to a very cool club.
