New York

Hey everyone!

So after a long flight I finally arrived my first destination. New York! This city is awesome! If you never been here you you missed something! I will stay here for 4 days and after that I travel to my Universty in USA. Kettering University in Flint, Michigan.

Here are some pics about NYC and my flight.

My stopover in Madrid.

After I arrived JFK Airport in New York, I decided to travel to my hostel by subway. To take take the cap was to expensive.


Late at night Nico and Manu woke me up to tell me a big suprise. They got tickets for the New York Knicks. That were great news cause I always want to see a NBA Basketball game.

On the first day we do a lot of sightseeing. We took the ferry to Liberty Island to watch the Green Lady. After that went went to Time Square and the Central Park. You can believe me this city is awesome.

2nd Day New York City

This evening we went to a basketball match of the New York Knicks against the Los Angeles Clippers. It was really great fun! The Madison Square Garden is very impressive and it was an awesome game. At the beginning it seemed like the Clippers would had no chance, but they got back into the game so we had the chance to see a overtime. In the first half the atmosphere in the hall was not so good but at the end the Garden transformed into a boiling pot!
Unfortunately the Clippers won the game 140:135 but we had fun anyway. More about the amazing evening below.

Last day in NYC

Thursday was our last day in NYC. After a little shopping tour and a trip to Staten Island we went out in the evening with some other guys from out hostel. Unfortunately we lost Nico & Manu in the subway. We didn't catch find them so we decide to do the club trip without them. First we start with a little bar called Continental. Special offer this day was 5 shots/ 10$ what is really cheap for New York. Normally you have to pay for one beer 7 to 9$. So you see it was a good place to start the evening. After the bar we went to a club called webster hall. This club was crazy. On the main floor the crowd was dancing like in a MTV Hip Hop clip. So we had a lot of fun this evening. (Pics comming soon!)

Let's go to Flint

After a 14 hour roadtrip with a stopover in Cleveland, Ohio we finally arrived in Flint. But before we colud move to our apartments we had to stay in Thompson Hall (a dorm) for 6 days.
