From the Big Apple

Am falling asleep at the moment, but wanted to pop in and say I will be back in London in a couple of days.

I am loving every minute in NYC. Have done sooo much, in fact everything I meant to do. It is one spectacular city - the place and the people; one adjective will have to suffice for now. It can be anything to anyone, I think.

Oh, wait till you see the photos! It is a city of great detail and there is beauty even in the corners.

Ciao xxx

What, you mean New Yorkers AREN'T the epitome of rudeness and impatience? ;-)

But seriously, haven't you heard:

- The smallest increment of time known to science is the time between the light turning green and the New Yorker behind you honking his horn.

- Have you ever heard a New York echo?

"Shut the **** up!"

(I hope y'all realize I have a smile on...and now I'm waiting for the Oregon jokes, if anyone has ever bothered making any.)

Lucky old you! Never mind, you'll be back in Blighty soon (tee hee!!)

Olivia said...

LB - when was the last time you were here?


Minstrel - Nope. One of my European friends agrees that Londoners are more aggressive.

The light turning green phenomenon happens more in London. In NYC, they actually wait for you to cross.

It's a much quieter, more well-behaved city. Amazingly enough. AND this is my opinion while staying with a cousin in The Bronx.


Pete - hello you too! All the fun will be over tomorrow :(


Cafe - bleh! :P

Guess I'd better go there and find out for myself. I suppose I owe it to all the (not very many) New Yorkers I've met, who were all great people.

glad you're having such a good time. can't wait to hear all about your experiences/journeys.

Minstrel - I've not been to New York yet but I would be very surprised if there is more pent up agrression there than London lol! From talking to people who've been to NY, I think the difference is this:

NY: 'Come on! Get F*** outta my way, i got places to be!'

Londoner: 'Not only am I going to get to where I want to be in as quick a time as possible, I'm going to make life as difficult as possible for everyone around me whilst I do so. Because I am from London, and you are all wankers'

or words to that effect ;)

Liv - get blogging slacker!
