Moving on and up

Much as I like my penthouse suite – did you see my dining room and dressing room:

I noticed the debit had come through on my credit card for two night’s accommodation and the Australian dollar has fallen so low compared to the $US that I can’t justify staying here for the remainder of my time in New York. After all I did come here as a homeless waif in the middle of the night.

I am moving to Times Square or more properly Hells Kitchen. Goodbye Bergdorf’s and hello bodegas and external fire escapes.

Of course it’s not too downmarket but it is a much higher room away from much of the street noise.

And a great view.

    Think of the heigh(th) as being an exercise source – running up and down the stairs instead of using the lift. May take a bit longer but will give you a wonderful excuse to go eat!
