New York City

On the 29th of November 5 ladies travelled to New York city to shop, shop, shop and shop. We got off the plane went to the Merriott hotel in Newart in New Jersey booked in and droped off all the bags in Elise and my room, the other three ladies were staying in NYC. We hit the shops then in Jersey Gardens, great mall. The other three ladies had to take a cab into NYC that night. On the friday the next day Elise and myself were up at 5 in the morning, I didn't feel like we were in NYC until we got into the city it self. We went to Ground Zone and to the church across the road from it Saint Paul's. Very, very sad. We had lots of coffee from Starbucks to keep us going.
That night Elise and myself went to the musical The Color Purple which we had booked from home months before we left. It was a brilliant show. We had to get a train from the NYC to Newark met a very nice guy and he told his life story and what train to take and went to get off. Got to bed that night at 2 in the morning, very very tried.
The next morning Saturday Elise and myself booked a cab from the hotel for the whole day our driver was Larry. The three went to Michael's got a few crafty bits there, then we went back to the hotel and picked up the other 3 ladies and went out to Woodbury Common, stayed there for the day.
We left there and headed back to NYC at 9.30. The cith was beautiful at night with all the light, we saw the New York Giants on their buses.
On Sunday we packed our bags and then went to do more shopping, we met a few ladies that were over for the week shooping. We went back to the hotel had something to eat, then we left for the airport.
