Wednesday 4th June was an exciting day for me: 1) Because I got to take my first greyhound bus and 2) Because I was meeting up with my family in New York! Although Mum, Dad and Becca had been in New York for a few days already and had seen a lot of the sights, there were still many more to see! As soon as I had got off the bus and met up with my dad, we were on our way to the first attraction: Madame Tussauds. Although we have one in London, each Madame Tussauds is different with lots of different celebrities including Will and Kate! Mum got to meet Mr Don Draper and he was very tall! Dad got a photograph with his other wife Jennifer Anniston and Becca and I received advice from the one and only Oprah. We also got to make our presidential speeches though it took Becca a while to decide on our pose!
We met all the Marvel characters (but there was no Captain America 😦 ) and saw a 4D film which was really cool though I felt a little sea sick after it!. The funniest part was seeing a group of girls go crazy for the Spice Girls! Walking through Times Square after seeing all our favourite celebrities, I knew exactly where to take M&D for dinner: The Stardust Diner. Located on the edge of Broadway, many actors start out here singing during your meal and auditioning for Broadway shows during the day. We listened to songs from Frozen and Chicago, and thought we were listening to a woman singing until we turned around and found out it was a guy!! It was a great first evening in New York.
