Travel: visit the Times Square, NY

I always had this dream…but I visit this place, and I just have one word to say: AMAZING!

When you’re there you stay kind of hypnotized with all that big screens…all that lights! When I was there, I just was so stuck looking around and saying: Wooooooooooow! Yeah, and this normally is the reaction of the tourists there…

But for sure, during the day this place it’s not so awesome, but at night my friend…well, at night when the show begins…
