Travel Room number 1313

Well we've made it to Canada two days ago!

Room number 1313We did a 2-night stay in New York on our way, since we had to transit there anyway, but it didn't go as well as we hoped. We stayed at Hotel Pennsylvania, right next to Penn station. It was an alright large hotel at a cheap price, however we were given this less from reassuring room number: 1313. (For some reason I always thought there were no 13th floors in the US?)
I was hopeful not let this jinx it, but although there was no big problem with the room or the hotel itself... on the first night we had some hot dogs at a small crammy joint and I think that's where we got food intoxication. We had to spend the whole next day in bed, sleeping about 20 hours straight (with countless toilet breaks), completely wasting our only whole day in the city. Damn.

Good Enough To EatAnyway, one of the nice things we could experience in New York (while I thought I had recovered, yeah right) was the great pancakes and friendly staff at Good Enough To Eat (483 Amsterdam).

Now we're at my parents place and taking it easy, having some good fresh air. Even though the temperature is about 0 to 5°C, it doesn't feel too cold and we're having a nice time!

(The time on this blog is now in Eastern Standard Time.)

Thanks a lot! We're doing alright now, and in a few minutes we're off to cabane à sucre (sap house)! :)

Atsuko , cool that you're going to Montreal too! I'm sure by then it will be pretty warm. Even now isn't that bad though there's still a slight bit of snow to melt, but spring sure is here!

eating at crummy joints in NY is dangerous .. especially if you do not desinfect your intestins with plenty of beer while doing so ... :)

I would have gone to Hooters :) .. i miss good chicken wings ...

I'll know better next time! How come all the kids eating there don't get sick? Is it because they've been eating that stuff all their lives?

Have a safe trip back! :)
