USA 2012: Week 7Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Finally, the last installment of my USA travel posts is here. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my family and relatives for making this dream of mine come true. Even after three months, it still feels surreal. The places I once only saw on the big screen were right before my eyes. There is no doubt it is such a beautiful country which makes me miss it sometimes. But as the saying goes, home is where the heart is and so, I choose the Philippines.
The places featured in this post are the following: United Nations Headquarters, Chinatown, Fashion Institute of Technology, Times Square, New York Botanical Garden, Macy’s, Uniqlo, Empire State Building and Koreatown. All are located in Manhattan except NY Botanical Garden, which is in Bronx.
