26.10. – 03.11.2019
Some might be asking why I went back to New York City again since I’ve been living there a couple of years ago. Well, it was a lucky coincidence that I got a ride there and then one of the most amazing apartments in whole Midtown Manhattan – thanks so much, Herta! 🙂 I had a great time there again with a feeling like being back home, meeting old friends again, going back to those places I’ve been before and visiting the ones that are new like the vessel, the high line, and the September 11 Memorial.
I also was in NYC at a very special time of the year – Halloween. During that time, the city is full of trick-or-treaters, haunted houses, costume parties, and parades. The most famous one is the Village Parade which everyone can take part in. It was a crazy party all night long and here are some of my favorite costumes as seen in the streets of Manhattan:
And I also went to Washington, D.C. again because my road trip across the States should start from there. This time, other than a couple of years ago, I was lucky with blue skies and sunny weather. Thus, I had a blast visiting the mall, all those memorials dedicated to the most important people in US-American history, and the Arlington cemetery.
After more than 10 hours of driving straight through, we arrived in Nashville in the very early morning and had a little rest before taking a sunrise walk through the capital of Tennessee.
The next stop was Memphis – home of the Blues and, of course, Elvis. A couple of years ago I’d already been to Graceland (a must-see when in this area) and his tiny birthplace in Tupelo but this time I revisited Beale Street and the Mississippi River where memories of the “Memphis in May”-festival 2005 came alive.
