Day Four : Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

And on the four day we rested…

I wish.

Instead I was up at 6 am, after maybe 4 hours of sleep because my stomach and head hurt from too much sangria and too much food the night before. I guess this means I’m old.

We only had two things to do today. See some of the parade and get to Nashville.

We watched the beginning of the parade from the hotel…

Hello Kitty Super Cute!

But it seemed so far away so we went downstairs in to the MOB of people in Times Square. I would guess that we never got closer to the parade than 30 feet back. This is what it looks like from there:

And this is what the crowd looks like:

Look at that handsome devil!

And we did make it to the airport on time to make our Nashville flight even though our hotel was on the wrong side of the now-closed Broadway street after almost causing a taxi driver fight.
