People I Saw in New York

If you look behind the horse-drawn carriage, you can see the driver wearing a top hat.
A few weeks ago, I visited New York City. To say it's amazing is an understatement.There is so much to see and so much to do, that it's easy to get swept up in the skyscrapers, restaurants, Broadway, Fifth Avenue, Central Park, and the landmarks like the Times Square, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and the Empire State Building. All of that was incredible, but I'm still amazed by the people. One walk through the hotel and different nationalities and languages overwhelmed me. In one day, I met people from Sydney, Australia; Russia; Istanbul, Turkey; India; China; and Scotland - and that was before lunch!

The languages produced a melody that set the beat for the city. On average, for every ten people I passed, only one was speaking English. Some of the languages I identified, but some were as mysterious as clouds.

Times Square!
If you want to experience the people, then Times Square is definitely one of the places to go.
Day or night, Times Square is always crowded. For that matter, every where is crowded!
There was one thing I didn't see. There were no celebrity sightings on my trip! But I did get to hear one loud and clear! My conference was next door to a ballroom where another conference was taking place. I didn't see him, but I surely heard him...
