We are at Manhattan. How impressive it is !!! It is exactly the way I have dreamt it, high, massive and dense, the american model in all its splendour.

I cannot wait for reaching the top of one of the numerous skyscrapers surrounding us. No doubt, we pick the « top of the rock » at the Rockefeller Center to get one of the best lookouts of Manhattan, very good choice…

It is nightime, we are moving to the Consumption temple of New York : Broadway and Times square. Lights and giant screens everywhere, that’s mostly what I can see. We are trying to find a quiet place but the touristic crowd is taking us.
