Jonesy goes shopping

rain 13 °C

After spending the morning on the bus heading downtown, we wandered a bit through East Village which is a university and fashion district. We touched on Chinatown though didn't really spend any time there and after lunch we walked about 40 blocks back uptown.

On the way we went past Lincoln Square, the Flatiron building, the NY public library and the Empire State building. As the weather was rainy and not ver clear, we decided not to go up the Empire State - maybe tomorrow.

We then hit 5th Avenue and did a bit of shopping. As someone who generally hates shopping, I found it remarkably easy to spend a decent amount of money today - sunglasses, a ring at Tiffany's and a new wallet. After the watch yesterday, my bank account has taken a battering! We also ducked into Abercrombie and Fitch, and it did not take long to figure out why there was a crowd always hanging around the front of the shop - had something to do with the half naked male model standing at the entrance. Just about every staff member in there was a model, so no wonder it was the busiest of all the shops we went into today.

Shopped had enough of walking, we called it a day and headed for dinner. Had the BEST dark chocolate soufflé!
