Day 12 - Brooklyn

Another fab day in the big city. We dined on Pizza for breakfast and then hit the streets to enjoy the 23rd annual Brazil Day Festival. Three streets, including a very large portion of 6th avenue was closed off, making way for the festivities, which included many stalls selling traditional food and drink. Thousands turned out. Every time we visit New York, we always seem to time it with this festival, fun!

Afterwards, I popped up to Columbus Circle to purchase my new Nike runners, which were not available in my size in the Nike Town.

We headed downtown to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge! What great fun, the views where amazing, but nothing prepared us for the culture shock which was Brooklyn's main shopping mall/street. We felt so out of place, definitely non-locals. We left as soon as we found the subway! An experience none the less. Manhattan island for us please!

After some shopping, we headed to the AMC on 42th street to watch the film "I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry". After a visit to M&M world and Virgin, we headed back to the hotel to freshen up and hit the nite life. We started in Vlada and ended up in Posh til closing 4am! We're wrecked!
