Autumn in Central Park

Yes it is cold but  beautiful crisp, cold ,clear  Autumn weather. Following John Stanwell's exhaustive list of places to eat we headed off to a Hungarian pastry shop near Columbia University where everyone was having intense, intellectual conversations or reading a book and tucking into cinnamon rolls.

Then we seemed to glide through Central Park on a magnificent day, Saw the usual hiphop/acrobat troupes, Capella singers, people running a 60 frigging k run around Central Park. Had our first hotdog and Raff saw where Glee and Gossip girl had romantic scenes.  Had a plan to go to two museums but Fifth Avenue and a few shops seemed to beckon us in.

Tiffanys was one of them but obviously didn't buy anything. Raffaela has been motivated again to earn money when she overheard the $6000 price of a piece of jewellery. Kept going to Times Square and was convinced by a street seller to buy a ticket to Hal's comedy show tonight. Cheap laughs for 10 bucks didn't sound too bad.

Our whole apartment is shaking to the neighbour's music - Harlem rocks. Another cool dude neighbour just returned something to my host - Harlem really rocks.
