World Trip 2009-2010: Day 5 – New York City, New York USA

Having made the decision to stay in NYC and wait for our Brazil visas I stayed up last night making the necessary changes. At around 1 pm I woke suddenly and with alarm woke Andrew, check out was noon and we were late.   Well it kicked it into high gear and30 minutes later had checked out and we didn’t forget anything.   Moving down a couple of blocks we checked into the Holiday Inn early with free internet!!! Very late in the day we headed down to Times Square and purchased tickets to Chicago (we got 50% off the total $70 each) and we then went and visited “Ripley’s Believe it or Not!” which was a lot of fun.   In particular the Black Hole experience had me nearly on the ground and I think Andrew went down to his knees, perception is everything after all.   The tallest man in the world and the body modifications people do was eye opening, a good pick by Andrew. Heading back to our hotel we dropped the daypacks and after checking my e-mails I found out the new flights out of New York to Rio was set as was the flight car pickup.   When we got to the theatre we found out Ashlee Simpson was in the lead role.   Very enjoyable show, went for just over 2 hours, I’m told Ashlee has mimed her performances on stage but not at the Theatre, she has a great voice.
