Forgetting that it was a holiday Monday for Americans (Martin Luther King day), I thought that most places would be closed.
Donairs are not recommended to be brought into a visit to the top of the Rock.
We thought that we, well I was in a big rush to get to the top before the sun would set, would be able to eat on the top. I originally thought there was a cafe up on the top.
As quick as we could, we chomped down our donairs in the exhibit room that leads to the main elevators.
The sun was just a few minutes from completely disappearing from the horizon, and I was snapping as many pictures from all around the top of the Rock. Without a tripod, I had a few that turned out pretty nice. Our faces freezing, we ducked into a Target-sponsored interactive exhibit, which also doubled as a warming up station. We snapped a few shots, and it took me a while to finally figure that people had to wave to make the lights glow…. ohhh…
Fifth Avenue is full of fashionable stores, but I was aiming to visit the Apple Store.
The Cube is gorgeous, and holy moly was it packed downstairs. I wanted to preview the new Macbook Air at that time, but of course its official release date was to be later in February.
Waking up late in the afternoon, we gave up on the idea of heading down to the Financial district. I was really keen on taking pictures of the architecture there, but I just got so caught up in B&H Photo. OMG OMG OMG- it’s a candy store for creative techies. Photo equipment, accessories, computers, lighting gear, telescopes?! Anything electronic related, B&H definitely got it. I did not want to leave… lucky I didn’t take a look at their catalogue until after I came back to Vancouver. I don’t know how would I have lugged all the special sale items from B&H over the border.
Avenue Q was hilarious. We were so close to the stage, practically front row center!!!
I wonder if the cast saw me singin’ along much?
