two hours ago (5 p.m. local time) i peeped around the corner of the street… some strong gusts of wind already blew up 5th avenue… and still… NYC dogs in yellow raincoats still have to do their poop-thing. ;). there’s KOREA TOWN (32th street) at the next block and the korean people imperturbably still run their businesses. many restaurants are open. so we just had korean picnick on our hotel bed. solely the writing on the chop stick packaging sounds a bit out of place today.
you can hear some winds by now, but not that much. for the first time, i’m kinda glad that our windows are point to the backside of the building into a small, tight atrium. that keeps most of the storm noises out, wich might have freaked us out. it’s surely less scary this way. speaking of scary things… do large scale patterned hotel carpets also remind you of SHINING? this is what comes to my mind every time… redrum redrum redrum… excuse my gallows humor. it’s a must right now.
