All the employees in the store were taking orders on their ipads as fast as they could enter the buyer’s information.

New York by Megan

When the plane was about to land, I was so excited about seeing New York, and spending it with my grandmother. I’ve heard so much, but it was a thousand times better than anything I could have come up with. Anyone could tell it was New York from when you stepped outside and there were 2,000 bright orange taxis waiting outside. The line seemed to never end! As soon as we got to Soho, I had already seen so many lights shining out of each and every building! The next week we saw the amazing metropolitan that constantly surprised me with all the amazing displays, we saw so much art and tasted the famous New York pizza! we watched out for all the fashion, watching all the latest trends, and the amazing comme de garçons where so much detail and time went into designing those amazing dresses, shirts and shoes! We also saw the two most amazing musicals, which are now my favourite, spider man and newsies! the choreography was amazing, and when the actors were swinging off stage and into the audience, it was amazing! When we came out of the theatre, despite it being dark outside, time square lit up like it was day! Every single corner was flashing, and shining! We took an amazing panorama photo, capturing every corner of time square. We visited Christies auction house, where paintings, pictures and objects were being sold for thousands of dollars! When we went behind-the-scenes, We touched the most amazing paintings by Degas, Vincent Van Gogh , Renoir, and Gauguin! It was amazing, and when we were sittings in an auction, I had to be careful not to accidently raise my hand. One of our favourite restaurants there was Vin et Fleur, we went there three times during the week and the bartender made the most delicious drinks. We named my drink after our waiter, Bartholomew Surprise. When we had to go over to the airport, I wanted to stay in New York with my Grandmother, but I had to go home. New York was decently the most amazing trip I have ever been too.
