|New York at night|
I met my friend Tyas over there. We rented an apartment with some other friends so the cost could be split up. We stayed in Brooklyn.
When I was in Indonesia, I watched some movies, which showed me many things about New York. I saw the Statue of Liberty, Manhattan, the Empire State Building, and the Wall Street Bull, all through my TV! But then, finally, Oh God, I was there! I bought the city pass to make the costs cheaper. If I didn’t buy that, I would have spent twice as much as I did.
To get around the city, I used the subway. That was also my first experience riding an underground train. I’m actually already familiar with the train, but for the way it runs, I mean the underground track, that was surprising for me. I wondered how they came up with that idea. It’s supposed to be really expensive to build it, but then, the advantages exceed all the costs.
