In August 2004 my friend Blair and I journeyed
to New York for my first time. Whether we were exploring the sights and sounds
of the city, or just trying to soak it all in, we tried to enjoy every last minute
of our five-day trip. We stayed in a hostel room smaller than our college dorm rooms
(which isn't saying much), took many the taxi ride with eccentric drivers, came within a
few feet of former President Clinton, and all in all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
I have highlighted some of the more memorable and entertaining parts of the trip.
back, relax, and try to remember your first wild adventures in a strange new land...
