The first day I got to explore Manhattan, I walked down Broadway. In few hours I found all of the stores I had been meaning to go to (but did not, except for just a few of them). Some things just never fail – one of them is Urban Outfitters. In my opinion their clothes are a bit too pricey, but the book and other stuff selection – oh my! I just couldn’t leave this behind:
They also had a Spanish and Chinese version, but this book will be perfect for my (non-existing) Japanese studies this summer.
2 weeks in America, and I have not shopped at all. On my exploring day I had to buy a tank top, since it was too hot outside and I only had a long-sleeved shirt, but that doesn’t count as shopping. Today I will be taken to a mall, so maybe I will not return empty handed from this country.
PS: I am not a big fan of freezing cold air conditioning which seems to be default everywhere, but having experienced a train without aircon, I am starting to warm up for it. Also, having music in a train car that has a broken sound system (resulting in constant plimploms and repeating announcement sounds) can improve mental stability.
PPS: Yesterday I had my first Long Island bagels (well, two of them were actually flagels: flat bagels), and I approve. Or maybe it was just the toppings.
