NYC Day 2 / Freezing Rain

From NYC
To add to yesterday, we went and saw "Wicked" last night - we didn't know what to expect. It is the story of the Witches of Oz, FYI. It was very good - the quality of the performers was what was awesome to me! I do have to say, though, my love of Chicago won't let me rank Wicked as #1.

We sat next to a couple about our same age - Matt and Teneale. They were from Australia and Matt works at a big church, too! They were such nice people and we hit it off. After the play ended, we went to Starbucks and talked until midnight. It was cool to learn about Australia and their life (especially in those accents)! They took off two months from work!! (This is kinda like their summer "holiday" time). They already went to Vegas, LA and are headed out today for 5 weeks in Europe. How cool? Anyway, it was neat to meet them.
This morning we were so tired from yesterday, so we didn't get a very early start. And it's sooooooooo cold out today!!

We ate lunch at a thai place called Yum Yum.

Then we've basically been out walking all day and we are now in the room thawing out. We just stood in line at TKTS for tickets to see Cirque Du Soleil at Madison Square Garden tonight!
