New York City

Okay, I'll make this as concise as possible. Our trip was absolutely awesome! We did miss our flight out, and I was really frustrated with myself for running us that close on time, but we didn't have any plans for that day, so at least it didn't throw off the trip in that way. Although I can no longer say that I've never missed a flight in my life. So the first thing we did when we got to NY was eat dinner. We picked Planet Hollywood, and it ended up being smack dab in the center of Times Square. I have to say, it was amazing to step out of the cab in the middle of all the lights and people and the city life. I loved it. On Saturday, we took a bus tour that hit all the high points of the city. We got off near the site of the Twin Towers and walked around for a while at the south end of Manhattan. That was probably one of the most memorable parts of the trip for me - just being able to see Ground Zero, to see all the people that were there, and to experience it in person. We saw some amazing churches that day as well - awesome architecture and incredible organ music in one of them...I'm getting hungry, so I think I'll write more later. But Matt is going to put a bunch of the pictures on a website, so I will let you know where that is so you can check it all out (it's, like, 4 pictures of us and 444 pictures of buildings and Queen...that's my boyfriend). He's too cute.
