I landed yesterday in a warm but slightly cloudy NYC after an amazing flight over. I can't complain about the comfort at all, it was pure pleasure and I was very well looked after! I decided to take the shuttle bus from the airport and got off at Grand Central Station and walked about 10 min along 39th street east to the hotel, The Pod 39. The hotel is very busy with a taco restaurant/bar next to it, another bar downstairs which seemed to be quite packed in the evening and another roof top bar on the 17th floor. It was pretty busy and offered a great view over NY in the evening! After friend M arrived, we decided to go for some Korean food (and to avoid falling asleep at 7 pm as we were dead tired..). We walked towards Lexington and Park Avenue and soon found our beloved Korea Way with lots of Korean restaurants. The choice of the evening was bipimbap, Korean beer and kimchi. The place was pretty busy (don't remember the name but remembered to take photos of the food at least). We woke up at 6 this morning and we will get ready for a breakfast at Starbucks and the head off to explore NYC. I have a few items on my shopping list but then I suspect we'll just roam around, watch people, have something nice to eat and drink and just enjoy ourselves.
