New York, New York!

In less than 10 hours I will begin my journey to NYC, and I am so looking forward to it although CNN's weather forecast doesn't look very bright. We start with a flight from Tirana to Vienna and then onward straight to New York. Still a long, long day considering the first flight takes off at 5 AM. Arggggh.

I'll be taking my laptop so don't forget to check in here as I will try to post some photos. Yes I promise to sight see between every shopping stop! I promise, I do. 4 wild women painting the town red- just imagine that! Sex and the city ain't got nothin on us. **giggle**

If anyone wants to share some insider tips on NYC for restaurants etc, please feel free! (Where do we buy the Manolo's??)

It's only 8 PM but my driver will ring my doorbell at 3:30 AM so I am off to read in bed and to try to catch a few winks.

Start spreading the news
I'm leaving today
I want to be a part of it,
New York, New York
These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
And make a brand new start of it
New York, New York
I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps
To find I'm king of the hill, top of the heap
These little town blues
Are melting away
I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York, New York.

I can't believe you're leaving us again! Aaah, lifestyles of the rich and famous and the jet set crowd! LOL

Indian restaurants smwhere at east village, 2nd or 3rd avenue.

Dean & de Luca (excellent bread and chease, expensive)

At Soho you may find the Manolo's although I don't really understand the hype

Live jazz bars allround Greenwhich (this place is anyway GREAT, east village too)

21st Century, downtown, close to once-twin towers, a good address for discount firmatto clothes (it's tiring but a lot of fun, one has to be in the mood for it))

Last, for you as a book lover: Barns&Noble's. I warn you, if you enter there you may forget to get out, and when you finally are out your pockets are empty.

I'm SINGING with you! You're gonna have so much fun. I've been in NY and have driven through it from the airport to the Pocono Mtns. but I've never really SEEN NY. It's on our list of places to visit one of these years. It'll be fun to see it through your eyes in the meantime.

Paint it RED, indeed!
