Our first day in New York started early. We ventured to Alexa’s apartment to drop off our bags. When we arrived, our perfect hostess had a lovely little note with a map waiting for us! She had prepaid metro cards and a pot of coffee for us as well! Our day had officially begun!
We met Alexa for lunch and ate at Bryant Park in the sunshine, surrounded by blooms! We then got to go to her office to finally see where she works! She has a door! We were impressed and proud!
Sadly, we had to leave her for a few hours while she finished her day at work so back out to the streets of New York we went only to be greeted by this…
So our rainy afternoon museum trip was well worth our time and it kept us occupied until we needed to head back to meet our working girl.
Then it was off to Veselka to eat some Ukrainian soul food with one of Alexa’s former professors and her husband. We had a great time and the weather had cleared so we could eat outside. What a great first day we had but it was only the beginning to one of the most wonderful of weekends with family in this great big city!
