Day 6


Its going to be quite a quick post today compared to yesterdays essay.

Today we woke up and I went back to the Mall, where T-Mobile had an authorised reseller, Radioshack. It was a fantastic store, it had all the technology that anyone could want, however there was one problem, they didn’t stock T-Mobile SIM Cards. It would appear that authorised resellers don’t need to have SIM cards, they just need to be able to help you with your questions and provide top-ups; well that could be anywhere then!!! So sadly I had no SIM card with data for a second day. Luckily there is an T-Mobile shop 0.02 miles from our New York hotel tomorrow, so I can pop down there and get one (fingers crossed).

All is not lost however, as we are staying in another set of Homewood Suites, which are an exact carbon copy of the Homewood Suites that we stayed in last night (however to Rachel’s distress there are no children’s books); that means that there is WIFI in the rooms, so I am once again using my MacBook Air to write my blog post and upload my pictures.

As today we were mainly driving, we only had a brief walk to the Hudson River, it was really nice and warm, and once again a dry heat, so it wasn’t that bad.

After the free dinner in the hotel, (that consisted of burger free burgers), I went to the gym for an hour, then in the pool; I was joined shortly by David, and then Rachel about 15 minutes later. Thankfully we had the whole pool to ourself as we were making a lot of noise, and splashing around. Rachel was able to lift me onto her shoulders and carry me around the pool. This either proves that I am very light, or I am of normal weight and Rachel is strong. Personally I think its a combination of the two.

Anyway, tomorrow we are driving to New York city and getting rid of the car. If memory serves me right, we are doing The Empire State in the evening tomorrow. If we are then that should be quite cool to see the New York skyline at night time – will definitely take a few panoramas in HDR if we get a good view.

Thats it for tonight, I’m going to head to bed and watch a few more episodes of Only Fools and Horses.

Night Night.
