From New York IX...

The last day in New York had come.
We had all packed and put all the luggage in the bus again. We had a last american breakfast.
Then, we went into the New York City one last time.
Our first stop was Greenwhich Village and then the Soho. These are exquisite and beautiful areas partly neighbourhoods as well as commercial areas with fine boutiques.Then we spent the rest of the day on the Fifth Avenue, again, because it has so much to see and to buy.Some of the group decided to visit the MOMA- the Museum of Modern Art, that's located in a nearby street.
Finally, we gathered at the Plaza Hotel, on the 59th street to the Fifth Avenue. And we were taken to the airport.

After the traditional ckeck in, we had time to have a snack before boarding in flight TP114 back to Oporto. We had a quiet flight, most of us decided to sleep a bit but others couldn't because they were still excited from the days spent in New York.
Once in Portugal, after going through Customs formalities and the annoying situation of having the luggage opened and searched, we could finally go to the bus that drove us to Felgueiras.
A final note, I had a wonderful feeling. Everybody was happy, it had been a great journey and in spite of the responsibility that means taking teenagers to a foreign and distant country I felt I had done something good for all...

Ola Amiga,

Fui acompanhando os posts que ias colocando por aqui. Esperei por todos para comentar, mas talvez ainda comente alguns em pormenor... A viagem foi certamente muito divertida e interessante. Muita respnsabilidade e isso não ha duvidas, mas no final correu tudo bem e fica a grande experiência.

Este era tambem um país que não conhecias. Gostaste? Espero que tenha servido de aperitivo para novas viagens e descobertas.

Beijinho mt grande
