“I have never been to New York”, once sang the German singer Udo Jürgens. This was also true for me.
New York was a shock after 13 months in Central and South America. I attended on an amazing 13-hour (!) guided tour through Manhattan and spent time in Harlem and Brooklyn. New York is a never tired city that gives energy, but also takes energy. I liked the city and will hopefully come back someday. I drove by the cruise ship “Queen Mary II” from New York via Halifax to Southampton. After two days in London I went by Eurostar to Paris and after another two days I went by TGV back to Stuttgart.
