Today we ventured through Central Park, which was beautiful! We explored the park from near where we lived up to near Columbus Circle and 5th Avenue.  It was fascinating to see how the park changes from one area to another.  From where we were located it’s quite relaxed with lots of pathways through wood area, to near 5th Avenue where it’s busy with tourists on horse and carriages, rocky areas and at the time we were there, an iceskating rink.  What surprised me the most was how huge the park is! We barely saw even half of it! You don’t realise how much of New York there is to discover until you’re there… all the nooks and crannys, you need a long time in New York to really explore everything outside of the main sights.

We made our way to Chelsea and explored the famous Chelsea Market.  The variety of food and nik naks was astonishing, with lobsters, spices, cupcakes and all sorts of culturally enthusing foods.  It was great to observe the diversity in culture amongst the array of foods and how these cultures can come together for people to enjoy.

To end the night we discovered a rooftop bar that had spectacular views of New York City, which was great to immerse ourselves in the New York nightlife and culture.
