nyc part 2: cobblestone streets, festivals, bridges and more

*if you missed part 1, see it here*

i guess we really were tired, as the next morning we woke up at 930! now, i'm sure to some of you, this is still ridiculously early, but i'm a 730-8am 'waker-upper' type of person. i couldn't believe it when i looked at the clock. and of course, it had to be the day i needed to wash my hair..but, we still had time for mimosas in the garden! after this, we went to the chelsea market again to grab a coffee, walked through the meat packing district and then stumbled across washington square (i think).just hanging out on a bus..hello, perfect little street..then, we somehow walked into this huge crowd of people; everything was blocked around it. we saw that it was 'strawberry fest' and thought it was pretty cool. there were games and food, but we noticed everyone had this strawberry ticket around their necks. dylan asked what was up, and it happened to be an NYU event for students and profs. you needed the berry ticket to get free stuff and play the games. too bad, so sad for us. or not. with dylan having the gift of the gab, we soon got ours! haha (the students were even supposed to sign in to get their ticket..not us!)this was the gem that got us games, strawberry shortcake, ice cream, a bottled drink, snow cones, cotton candy...shhh..for that hour, we were NYU students.look at all this cake!! it was so long, like unreal.

after we enjoyed all our free stuff and were rather full, we found another small book sale on the campus. dylan actually picked up majority of his books here (about 5 or 6 maybe). he got a bunch of classics like to kill a mockingbird, animal farm, clockwork orange..
at this point in the day, it was getting really hot out. what was up next? well, we got a yummy pizza in little italy, walked through china town, then got knee deep in china town and it was a little scary! a walk on the manhattan bridge was next in line..from the bridge...
next time, we're doing the brooklyn bridge..

after getting off the bridge, we randomly saw a bunch of SWAT guys just hanging around, not sure why. we visited more bookstores, got strong (like really strong-mostly my vodka7) drinks at Lorely (a german beer pub), searched for dean and deluca unsuccessfully, checked out an antique market, went to union square, where dylan played hacky sack with some guys, went home, got changed, dylan got the double down, we went to times square (which we really didn't want to do, but the theatre there was closer by the time we got to KFC, but it ended up not playing the movie we wanted anyways), then went back to union square to see alice in wonderland there (it was ok, certainly didn't love it). we got back around 1am, and of course, we were exhausted once again.dylan playing hacky sack with some new friends.

that my friends, was day 2! but, there's still more to come tomorrow! i'll just leave you with this beautiful picture..enjoy, i know dylan did..
