What? 2008? Already?

Wow! Time flies when you’re having fun.

This year, I had friends visit all the way from Indiana. They got here on the 30th, and left on the 2nd. In those 3.5 days, I’ve seen more of NY than I thought possible (Central Park, Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Wall Street, Battery Park, WTC site, a Broadway musical — just to name a few).

For new year’s eve, we went to Times Square..

Times Square

Clockwise starting from…well, ladies first, right? ;)…Wikipedia article: Valkyrie (yes, that’s her real name), Ethan (from Indiana), me, Ilya (from Stony Brook).

If you haven’t noticed on TV, Times Square was quite packed. We got there around 15:30, but didn’t get to be penned (like cattle) with a couple of hundred other people until about 16:15. We were about 15m north of 47th Street, where we stood till bit after midnight (yes, that’s effectively 8 hours).

Fun, but exhausting 3.5 days.
