Our last day in New York was spent exploring the MET and walking through Central Park. Of course it didn’t start out that easy. We still didn’t quite get up as early as we hoped we would. Three out of four of us admitted to fighting a cold. And we ended up accidentally taking the express subway train which skipped right on past the station we wanted to get off at. We had to wait for the local train going in the opposite direction.
The MET was busy, but you only really felt it in the lobby itself. Once you start exploring the different wings or halls it didn’t seem so bad. The place is HUGE, so we knew we weren’t going to get to really see much in one day. Of course, the boys had to challenge that theory by rushing through the whole thing and seeing everything they could without understanding any of it. Dan spent most of his time in the arms and armour exhibit and I spent all of my time trying to absorb as much as I could of the Greek and Roman halls. Dan and I also took the highlights tour, so we got to see a little bit more of the museum.
We then took about half an hour to walk through Central Park, which was lovely, to go for supper at McGee’s Pub. McGee’s Pub is the inspiration for McLaren’s Pub in How I Met Your Mother. Hence the name of today’s blog.
Now we’re back at the hotel, trying to get everything to fit in our bags in preparation for our departure tomorrow. Zak and I also made a point of at least taking a look at the jacuzzi area on the roof of our hotel, which was actually pretty cool. I regret not bringing my swimsuit now.
