Once upon the time (2009 to be precise :) ) I decided to hit a destination I was curious about for long time... Uncle Sam´s USA!
Yes, I wanted to visit the Big Apple and experience the city that never sleeps...well guys... it´s true! The city surprisingly never stops. It was a very intense experience that started as soon as I step the first time in the streets of New York! I took the metro from the airport directly to Manhattan (I stayed there in a cheap but friendly hostel close to Square Garden) and as soon as I saw those amazingly big buildings I noticed that I was surrounded by Police, Firefighters, Ambulances...resuming a proper chaos! Obviously I had spend the precious 17 hours travelling so I thought there was a terrorist attack... I wasn´t so far from the truth but fortunately was just a terrorist attack drill so nothing to worry about. :)
The time I spent in NY was short but intense, I only manage to explore Manhattan but it was great anyway because I could visit those iconic places like the Empire State Building, Central Park, Fifth Avenue, 9/11 Memorial and much more.
