living the american dream part three
When I left for America I spent the first three days in New York City with a bunch of other exchange students from Sweden, Norway and Denmark. We stayed at a really nice hotel close to Newark but every day we were actually in the city. We saw every freggin tourist attraction there is. The statue of Liberty, Central Station, Rockefeller Center, the Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square, Chinatown, Soho, Little Italy, the Manhattan Skyline, Ground Zero, Greenwich Village (where we saw the building from the tv-show Friends!), Central Park and everything else in NYC. It is pretty exhausting being a tourist I must say. Anyhow it was great because after doing all the touristy stuff we were free for the afternoons. So we would go shopping on Fifth Avenue, have a coffee from Starbucks and blah blah blah. You know. Anyways it was fun seeing a little about how Americans are. And that is that they are all so nice. So different from Swedish people. Americans actually greet you when you for an example walk into a store or when you are about to buy something they actually talk to you. It's a nice little change I have to say.
