    Renting a car, if you got something big, couldn't have been cheap I imagine.

    Full-sized SUV was $467 (plus taxes/fees/whatnot) for the week. It was cheaper than a minivan, for some reason. Probably the minivan (Dodge) was all equipped (electric doors). But the full-size SUV seats 7 so there must be a third bench (we're taking three of the kids with us and there's no way I'm driving 600+ kilometers with the three of them sharing a rear bench). Gord Miller (did I say Millard before?) tweeted yesterday a picture of a Caddy he got upgraded to by Avis. I'm renting from Avis as well. Fingers crossed. The fullsize SUV is "GMC Acadia or similar"; I wonder what the upgrade could be.

    Weird thing -- I just looked at their pricing, and the daily rental for the minivan is quite a bit less than the fullsize SUV, yet for the weekly rental it was the other way around. I wonder if they made a mistake.

    Here, take a look -- does this make *any* sense?



    The full size is not just less than the minivan but it's less than the "standard" SUV.

    Made it to the hotel. It's a half block away from Time Square -- can see it out our window. $12.95 for Wi-Fi and that's just 24 hours. $9 for a mini bottle of vodka (the airplane size) and $28 for a 200 ml one. After driving in NYC traffic for the last hour or so, I feel I deserve it. Mised the hotel the first time around (building numbers jumped where Broadway crosses and we thought we missed it); it took another 40 minutes to go around again. Forget supper, we'll have to eat after the show. Good thing this city never sleeps.

    Show ended just before 11 so we figured we'd get a quick supper. Waiting time was 45 minutes until we were a couple blocks past Time Square. Finally got seated around eleven thirty. There were parents with young kids sitting at a couple tables around us. The lineup to check out at the 24 hour Walgrens was about 25 minutes (this was after super). And that's with three cashiers on duty.

    City that never sleeps is right.

    If I were waiting until midnight for dinner, I'd have resorted to cannabalism before then.

    Speaking of which, I'm currently reading "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. Pretty haunting stuff.

    Those are all tourists, though. Half of them may still be on their old timezone. But the hotdog vendor packing things up past midnight, who will be out the next morning at 8am, if not earlier, crazy.

    Off to Central Park and then the Met. Maybe do the ESB observatory in the evening. It's open daily until 2 am.

    Five hours of walking. Ouch! The Met wasn't at all what I expected. Not a gallery at all, but a museum (as the name implies). Don't think we got our money's worth except as a workout. Central Park is fantastic. But you need a map. Seriously! I thought we had walkee all across it but we actually walked in almost a circle and and up almost where we started. Then we went to the Met.

    On the walk back to a bit of a detour and walked through Rockefeller Plaza. 30 Rock.

    Only one typo on the last post: walkee instead of walked.

    BTW,had a jumbo hotdog from a vendor in Central Park and it was pretty blah. Maybe should've gone for the falafel or gyro.

    The Blue Fin (47th at BWay) is a bit pricey, but the pan seared halibut I had was fantastic. Still hungry, though. All that walking and dodging yellowcabs.

    Now, a couple episodes of The Killing to get our money's worth from that $12.95 WiFi. Then I think we are done. This was a hard day on the old bones. A lot of walking. Back to family life tomorrow.

    Wow, reports are that Robin Williams has died -- apparent suicide. Very sad. As Mork used to say, "Heavy sigh".
