The only other photo I took inside the museum that came out:
We had a lovely lunch together, and Alena had to get back to her normal life, kids, etc., so we parted ways. I went to Central Park and had a lovely, if VERY cold, walk through the Ramble and down by the lake. I found a couple geocaches in the park, too.
I went back to my room and warmed up a bit, and then wanted some sort of ethnic food I couldn't get back home in Bend, and ended up choosing a restaurant (shoot--I already forget what ethnicity it was!) that was near a movie theater, so I also watched a movie before heading back to my room (in a cab--I was too lazy/exhausted to walk or take the bus!). I fell into bed, exhausted and needing to rest up before my training the next four days.
The rest of my time in NYC was limited to just evenings. Tuesday, I went to a Thai neighborhood (that also had Chinese and Spanish on the signs in the area) and had a delicious dinner. Wednesday, I went to Greek Town in Astoria, Queens and had another delicious dinner.
Packed, went to bed, got up ridiculously early, took a cab to the airport, had a SEVEN hour layover in Seattle, which my brother was kind enough to entertain me for part of, then finally got home after a long day of travel and a long week without my kitties.
