New York, New York Day 2

Ground Zero.
Very inpressive place to be. Also a strage place to be. When I walked around there, all the memories came back. My brother who came to my room to say some airplane hit some tower in NY.. The second airplane I saw hit the second tower on tv. The sounds. The towers tumbling down.. The terror..

We also went into a the Tribute Centre next to Ground Zero. It was a museum about the history of the Twin Towers, about what happened at 9/11 and about all those people who died on that horrible day. It made a huge impression on me. Now writing about it makes me still very angry and sad..

After that impressive morning we decided to make a walk around Soho, Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking District. In the beginning of the walk we already stumbled into this cute market.

At that market there was a performance of a group of elderly people who sang: "We're gonna rock tonight! We're gonna rock, rock, rock.. We're gonna rock around the clock". They sang it with moves and all.. So funny!

J. infront of a very cheap Mark Jocobs store. I already read about at home but didn't thought about it when we were walking. So by coincidence we saw some people waiting inline, walked to it and then the alarm bells went off and we immediately also went into the line. The store was really tiny, but great. Bought a nice bag..

J. and me infront of the house of Carrie of Sex and the City! This went kinda the same as with the Marc Jacobs store. We walked into a street and saw some Japanese woman make pictures of one house in special. So the alarm bells went again off and I asked them why they took photos of the house in special and they asked: "Well, do you know that serie, Sex and the City?" And I was like "Yeah!!" haha! Coincidence, coincedence..

Some dudes playing basketball.

View at the Chrysler Building..

Meatpacking District..

Original mac and cheese. It was delicious!

An unsuccessfull photo, but I think it captures the atmosphere of New York great..

The Empire State Building.

View from the Empire State Building. My photocamera isn't great in the dark, but it's better than nothing..

More view..

A guy playing the saxophone. What more can you wish for?

It was a 'bit' windy at some sides of the building ;-). Very nice if you wear a light dress. It caused some Marilyn Monroe moments ;-)..

The word is DeGeneres

This morning I did some great shopping. First I bought a ticket for a concert of the Artic Monkeys at the Heineken Music Hall in november and then I went with my mum to a flee market in a little village near my village where I bought the second and fourth season of Will and Grace for a bargain.

The Artic Monkeys is a band I always wanted to see, so I'm already looking forward to november. My brother just saw them at Lowlands festival and I was quite jealous of him, but now we'll go together, so that's just great :-).

I've seen all the episodes of Will and Grace already serveral times, but I think they never bore and to have them on dvd is great for a sick day or a lazy sunday ;-)..

In a world of imagination

So I'm back from Sziget and it was the BEST!

I've lost my voice and still didn't find it back and I had suddenly an astmatic attic which I didn't had in years, but it was all worth it! Such a great festival with such a great line-up and crowd! It was fantastic!

My favourite was Fatboy Slim. I was already looking forward to his gig, but it was mind blowing great.. And I actually liked the ending of the gig, instead of a lot of other people. What do you want more if the love is in the air?!

New York, New York Day 1

Our hostel. We stayed at the YMCA and it was a really nice place. Very clean and quiet. The only thing we missed was any contact with some other people..

A lovely bench at the Central Park. I only know these benches from the movie Notting Hill. They are so sweet..

Me in the Trump Tower..

Me and J. having fun in the Disney Store.

A corner in a toy store where little children get read to. I really loved all the stores and specially the toy stores. I felt like a little child all over again!

Inside the Saint Patrick's Cathedral.

Me in front of the Apple Store. Also an amazing store. It's open 24 hours a day! Also nice for the people who work there ;-)!

Me at Central Park.

First we almost didn't see any animals at the zoo in Central Park. It was probably too hot for the poor animals. But after walking around we finally found this beautiful polar bear. It was actually posing for the crowd. Very 'cool' animal ;-)!

Strawberry Fields. Dedicated to the memory of John Lennon. Also a very nice place with a 'peaced' atmosphere. We sat there for more than an hour. Just watching other people making photo's of the memorial sign and enjoy some music made by a street artist.

See a secret, share a secret Part V (final)

Via Postsecret.


Yesterday I went with my friends J and M to the latest Harry Potter movie. I loved it! It's kinda a girly movie, because of all the love that's in the air, but that's also nice for a change haha!

And I really liked actor Rupert Grint. He's like the puppy you always wanted ;-)!
