Holy Crap, I'm in New York

It might be the city that never sleeps, but I'm not far from the pillow, personally. The Mrs. and I hopped a Greyhound in Frederick and rode on up to the City. The bus showed up an hour late, but our driver from Baltimore to NYC made up some time so we were "only" a half hour behind.
And then we were in New York.
This is only my second trip here, my first time being a whirlwind tour where we were in and gone in 24 hours. I'm trying to get at the cab ride once we were here. Wow. If you've never been to NYC and taken a cab do it. It's like a roller coaster with worse odds, but still really exciting. And with a better view. You see more interesting things in a 5 minute cab ride (as you whiz by at neck-breaking speed) in NY than you do in an entire day in Frederick or Hagerstown. Maybe even 2 days.
Hopefully the rain holds off enough tomorrow so that I can fill up a memory card or two.
Now I'm going to close the lid on my laptop and pass out to the TV-inspiring sounds of mid-town Manhattan.

p.s. this gets a "zen" label because you have to approach that kind of calm to survive the cab ride. At least, I do.
