Change the pitch up
These were the first nights that we had to go back after midnight. I expected an empty subway on Wednesday. Instead, the stations were full of life. On the platforms of Times Square station musicians played and there were a lot of people waiting for the subway trains. I guess this is why they call New York 'the city that never sleeps'. It's not because of the nightlife, because most of the clubs are closed at 4.00. But you can be sure that when you're asleep, in New York enough people are working to keep the entire economy running. 24 hours a day. That explains why the lights in Manhattan are permanently on.
And for three days we were part of this ever continuing business. It looked like a half face to face week. As always, in the weekend I went out again. But me and Julien still had to recover from the lack of sleep and the pressure from this week. On Friday I probably used more swear words than in the entire quarter so far. "You become a real New Yorker now", someone told me.
