NY Day 10: August 23rd 2011

After school we went to Central Park- we are slowing down and need some rest I think.

The first signs of autumn <3

We’ve seen a 9-year old kid skating on his board and a 11-year old boy playing the ukulele and singing cool songs by the Beatles & Jason Mraz (it was like a mystery: just when I gave him 1 Dollar he began playing Obladi Oblada by The Beatles, just as he read my mind!!!)

The Bethesda Fountain

<3 William

Chiara and Jenny watching the Skyline

We went to Roosevelt Island via Highline (not the Highline but a highline) but it was not that great so we qucikly went back to get to the Cake Shop. First we went to a wrong adress I worte down, it was the adress of the diamondway buddhism centre I wanted to visit another time.

So Cake Shop- Lower East Side, for Chiara was hungry and we had lots of free time until the bans were about to play, we went to Mikey’s where I had my first Rootbeer ever and I think it will be the only one :) The bands at the Cake Shop Julian and the Lopez Dispensers and another band were pretty cool, I liked, obviously, JATLD with the female singer more for it was like California happy sunshine msuic :) I never have seen a band like this before so I was pretty happy for this incident :) And: It was for free! Had a Bud, and that’s it.

Oh, and in the afternoon I showed Jenny the muffin shop I bought a muffin on friday and we had lunch with great slices of cake (choclate fudge!!!) there.

NY Day 06: August 19th 2011

I got up early for I wanted to go to the Central Park before school, seeing Strawberry Fields. Unfortunately I couln’dt find my notebook from school (I recognized today!) so I searched all over my room for it. I coulnd’t find it and so I thought I lost it on the train after my bad ride on the subway.

When I arrived at 72nd Street West Central Park I just saw


walking out of Strawberry Fields. I was so surprised seeing her and also confused if it was really her… She walked me by a meter distance between us and I realized it WAS her! So I took my camera and shot a photo of her back :P (actually I don’t like taking pictures of famous people, for they have to deal that day by day, but from the back it was ok, she didn’t really notice…)

So when I went to Strawberry Fields (the street John Lennon lived in Liverpool when he was young was called Strawberry Fields) to see the “Imagine” mosaique I instantly started crying :D, I was so overwhlemed by this area. It’s so beuatiful John Lennon still lets people “come together” in hope for a better world!

my wet face :P

The Dakota, the famous Hotel where John Lennon has been shot in 1980, Yoko Ono still lives there.

After this huge experience I went down Columbus Ave and had a great Muffin, apple with cranberries, no sugar aka low fat :P (I don’t really care if there’s sugar or not, but the new New Yorkers do…)

After school we went to the Lomography store at the Lower East Side and when we got out of the subway there has been big thunder, lightning and heavy rain. We waited for the rain to calm down, since it wouldn’t we ran through the rain to the store. There I bought a 4 lenses horizontal actionsampler in blue, so did Jennifer, and I love it- curious about the photos!

Finally we had dinner next to Red Bamboo(vegetarian) the Lomogrpahy store cashier recommended but since it was really full and we had to wait at least one hour, we went to Vegetarian Paradise 2, which was also great! I had Veggie Beef with several vegetables, delicious!!! And surpsising for me, the others, who eat meat, say it’s awesome that this veggie meat tastes alike real beef :D

NY Day 04: August 17th 2011

Lost in the park

The street I lived in

Of course I needed to take a walk in a park finally. So I chose to stand up early in the morning to be very early for I had an appointment with the others for breakfast in Manhatten. I went to Prospect Park (to the Q to Parkside Ave) and ha d a walk, but I really got lost and very late…

Sitting on a bench in the park- my feet got a little wet (flooded lake after the big rain)

Wanted to take the sub at “Prospect Park” but didn’t find it so I went to 7th Ave with a very fast walking guy. There, or before, I saw a big Quadriga, but not as big and as beautiful as in Braunschweig/Brunswick! So I saw a little part of Brooklyn but I definately liked it!

I came half an hour too late, we went near Madison Square Garden, next to Chiaras residence The New Yorker and had breakfast in a diner. I had pancakes with lemon, ricotta and blue- and raspberries. Unfortunately it was too sweet for me!

After school we went to the Central Park to take a rest, everyone of us needed to. When we got back to Chiaras residence Francesco notived he lost his sunglasses so we had to go back looking for them and we found them!

May I present you? The Beatles!

Hotair Balloon :)

After that we had a slice of pizza for I was starving and then went to a rooftopbar for free at 230 E28th and 5th Ave. The sight was awesome but the party sucked =) Nevertheless it was fun with my friends. I came home by 3am and had a refreshing shower.
