And the rain came as predicted, or at least I was cloudy and drizzled. And half of New York had planned the same thing so we weren’t exactly alone visiting Madame Tussauds today. It was barely unbearably hot in the entrée so lucky us who had pre-booked tickets so we could skip all the waiting in lines and just passed through them. Inside the museum the temperature was better.
Celebrities, presidents and athletes all made in wax were exhibited at all floors of the museum and they were really well-made and look-alike. When you got into a crowded room you couldn’t really tell who was a wax doll or human sometimes. A little creepy when "a doll" started to move around. We walked through the museum in an hour. After that we decided to walk on our own and meet up later for dinner in the evening. I visited a lot of dressing stores hoping to find real bargains. I walked along Broadway, 7th Avenue and 6th Avenue without finding something truly exciting.
However I had started to get a sore throat so I bought something at the Pharmacy to ease the pain. It wasn’t a question IF you would catch a cold here in New York but WHEN. Half of New York were coughing and had nasal catarrh so it had to be a miracle if I wouldn’t get any of it. We met at the hostel later that evening and went out to an Italian restaurant and ordered pasta. Unfortunately they had a little too much garlic in their salad.
