I stayed in Harlem area one night, and the big famous popular park “Central Park” was nearby, so in the morning I went there. I did not have breakfast at the time, so I was hungry, and the weather was good and hot. When I was going to the park I got a cool idea, maybe I can do picnic like there. Yes I am smart. haha In travel, always something unexpected is always happened, so I have to used to it & need to be flexible if I want to keep this travel.

Just nearby Central Park, there is a famous apartment “Dakota House” that John Lennon & Yoko Ono were living in. One day, John went outside one of his crazy fan shoot & killed him. Sad happened. People missed one of the best musicians.
Oh, I found the cheep warm food just around the corner! I bought “chicken on rice and coffee ($6). and brought it to the park.
From Dakota house, there is the memorial place for John Lennon in Central Park. It is called “strawberry filed”. Many fans of him come here. I felt sad here little bit.
I sat on somewhere grass, and had picnic alone with the food and coffee. I did not eat warm food for a while, so when I eat the warm food and coffee, I was touched, how good warm is…!
Thorough my travel, I realized how the normal life was great in Japan. I could eat warm food like everyday, could take a warm shower, could sleep on futon with roof (in a room). The things that I felt normal was not normal as the other country. I had to thank of the situation so much..
after doing alone the picnic with some realizations, I was walking around there little bit. It is so huge space,, and many people who are running, riding horses, performers, musicians, sleeping, eating,,, etc
So much green like macha. ah i wanna drink macha green tea latte.
I started to walk from Dakota house, and came to the biggg museum “Metropolitan Museum”, it is really not far away from Dakota. Also I had good time to walk in central park.
This museum is called “3 big museums” around world. One is British one, the other one is the Paris one, and this one. Anyway, this one sooo huge. Cannot see all just one day, indeed.
Oh by the way,,
The cost is suggestion, so it does not matter how much you pay for it.
I paid just $1 to get the ticket!
It is okay to take photos but without flash.
Soooooo many items there, well actually toooo many to see all in a day. I think if I want to see all I need to have more than 3 days. So I focused on the items that I’m interested this time.
I don’t know why, but I really feel something great about Egyptian. The arts, culture, pyramid on desert,, everything is beautiful and mysterious.
