Like a bird (29.07.2013)

When I heard that there exists the possibility to fly over Manhattan on a helicopter I felt that it was something I had to do. It would be my first flight on a helicopter and what a better panorama could I have chosed?

How lucky I was, they assigned me the seat next to the pilot…

And back to our starting point, Pier 6.

And here moving away from Pier 6.

I spent the rest of the morning walking through the Financial District, Trinity Church and the 9/11 Memorial. Unfortunately I forgot to load the camera battery the day before so I was not able to take much more fotos.

In the afternoon I went to the SoHo district and carried out some to do’s like writing cards, laundry service and buying a GPS for the Campervan I will pick up tomorrow; in some way I have to help me out getting out of this city đŸ™‚
