I met some friends in New York City who were on vacation visiting the USA from another country. I spent my weekend in another language and another culture. I have to admit it was super fun. It felt like I was getting an international vacation without leaving the country. Being a Third Culture Kid, I felt very comfortable. I just wish my language skills weren’t so rusty. I could understand everything but had difficulty expressing myself as well as I would have liked.
The really funny thing is I discovered that almost everybody in NYC speaks Spanish. It even got to a point where it seemed odd when somebody spoke English.
The first night our dinner reservation was at 10:30 pm. NYC really is the city that never sleeps! The next night we dined early – 9:00. We ate well, discovered some great rooftop bars, and even managed to squeeze in a trip to a museum.
NYC was hot, humid, crowded, and wonderful!
I love New York!
Good for you! Glad you had big fun in the Big Apple.
Sounds very fun! (and no wonder you’re thinking about the difficulty of reading signs solely written in English!)
Just referring to your comment on my post about a set of Hong Kong vs. American park signs.
I know, I was making a bad joke. 🙂
