Day One - From Queens to Brooklyn, Starbucks and Martha Stewart

A trip to our first home was very exciting. Since we had to drive from the one side of Queens to the other side of Brooklyn we got to see all the layers of these cities. There actually was a sign "Assulting a bus driver is a fellony" posted on the window which was pretty scary to be honest. But the people were SO kind and friendly. They showed us around when we were lost or just came and had a chat with us.

The first day (like any other day) started at Starbucks with our coffee and breakfast. Eating was the main theme of the rip. We went to those Mexican diners on corners and ate instant noodles bought from Chinatown and we went to Little Italy for some true pizza italiana.

The first NY expressions were sublime. Times Square was gorgeous in the morning and we visited the huge Toys"R"Us and other legendary spots.

They were filming a commercial for Ocean Spray's cranberry juice in front of Rockefeller center with Martha Stewart so Ocean Spray instantly became the official drink of the USA trip for me.

Reis meie ööbimiskohta oli väga põnev. Kuna pidime sõitma Queens'i ühest otsast Brooklyni teise otsa, saime näga Brooklyni kõiki kihte, alates sügavast getost kuni kultuurse boheemlase linnaosani. Esimese asjana oli shokk muidugi buss, milles sõitsime. Olime ainsad valged bussis, mille aknal oli teadaanne "Bussijuhi ründamine on kuritegu. Karistus: kuni 2 nädalat vanglakaristust või rahaline trahv" ja kuhu astusid sisse kaks meest kes olid vihased politsei peale, kes neile kanepi suitsetamise eest trahvi oli teinud.
Aga inimesed olid kohutavalt sõbralikud, chattasid meiega, aitasid ja juhatasid teed.

Päev number üks (nagu ka kõik järgnevad päevad) algasid Starbucks'i kohvi ja saiakestega. Söömine oligi tegelikult põhiline tegevus. Käisime nii nurgatagustes Mehhiko söögikohtades kui sõime kodus Chinatownist ostetud kiirnuudleid.

Esimesed NY muljed olid muidugi väga ülevad. Times Square oli varahommikul imeilus. Külastasime hiigelsuurt Toys-R-Us'i ja muid legendaarseid spote.

Rockefelleri keskuse ees filmiti parasjagu Ocean Spray jõhvikamahla reklaami Martha Stewartiga. Ocean Spray mahl sai ametlikult minu jaoks USA reisi tunnusjoogiks ja ma ei jätnud kellelegi mainimata kuidas ma selle reklaami tegemist pealt nägin, kui keegi mind seda jooki joomas nägi.

    Breakfast at Starbucks, mexican diners, pizza in Little Italy? Pretty bad food choises, I'd say;). Also Queens and Brooklyn are not really cities but bouroughs of New York;).
