I don't think I've ever seen so many lights in my life. And so many people! I couldn't decide if I was overwhelmed, confused, or in awe of the place. But first, FOOD! We were starving, but despite the hundreds of restaurants around the area, we couldn't decide where to eat. I think i didn't want to fall into a tourist trap, like i've often read. So we settled for hotdogs instead, our first taste of this New York staple. I must admit, it was a bit disappointing. Perhaps I've been living in Australia for too long to assume 'chips' means french fries, and not the crispy potato chips that come in cellophane wrappers. Oh well. It was only our first night, and there were plenty of chances to try good food (or terrible ones too). After giving our cameras a good workout, and basking in the bright city lights, we hit the sack and dreamed of the day ahead.
