The Big Apple

St. John of Gods NS, Passage Road, Waterford

Dear family & friends,

I arrived in Washington DC safely a few days ago. I took a taxi to “The Plaza” where I set off walking across the road to Central Park. The scene was breath taking. There was so much greenery that it made it look similar to Ireland. I loved wandering around in the beauty of the park. Later I got a taxi to “The Empire State Building ” where I was given a guided tour. After that, I walked through Time Square where I bought ice cream before walking back to The Plaza for dinner. The Plaza is a really beautiful hotel and I was starving!! Yesterday I woke up and took a fancy New York limo as I felt I deserved it. I went to see “The Statue Of Liberty” and then took a boat over to “Ellis Island” where I could see the Hudson River. This morning I got a taxi to 5th Avenue where¬† I did a lot of shopping which¬† I immediately regretted as I do not think I will be able to fit it in my suitcase. After I walked to Washington Square Park where there was a lovely view of the monuments I walked to Broadway Street where I got a taxi back to The Plaza. As soon as I got back I packed up and made my last trip to the Natural History Museum. It’s so interesting and I got so caught up in looking at artefacts that I missed my flight. Can you believe it? How bad? I love it here. Its everything I imagined.Thanks again for entering me into the raffle that brought me here.

Love Anna xxx
