New York City is a magnificent mix of sights and sounds. Like any large city, it's the wonderfully diverse array of people that gives it life and personality. I'm glad this was my last stop in the US before heading out. Next stop, Peru.
New York City is a seemingly infinite visual feast for the urban explorer. Every direction presents a colorful mix of people, activities, buildings and skylines. The city was also my last stop in the US before departing for Peru, and it provided an opportunity to simply explore without a set agenda. $30 bought an unlimited MetroCard good for a week, perfect for my spontaneous wanderings. $3.75 bought a cappuccino and the chance to observe the wonderful kinetic energy that is NYC.
