Our first trip
The first step was to get from our hotel to a metro station, which proved to be kind of troubling. In London the metro system is easy and it speaks for itself on every street corner you see an obvious sign with text and explanation. Here in New York to even find a metro is hard let alone finding one that heads in your direction. I hope by the end of the week I will be able to use the metro system properly.
After we bought ourselves a metro card (seven days unlimited for $30,-), we managed come close to Time Square. Time square is a very known sight from movies, yet I did not recognize it at once. There were just too many impressions! After we got out of the metro and above the ground again, the buildings were huge and the billboards bright. We needed to get some breakfast first. I chose my first real American pancakes. They were served with fresh fruit, maple sirup and whipped cream. Delicious!
We split up before breakfast and were to meet again in front of a specific Star bucks. It was then that I realized and saw that it was actually Time Square we had been on all along. After I’d ordered my way too big coffee and drunk it inside while texting the home front, I walked outside. As I did that the sun broke true the clouds and instead of the grey city I saw before, there now was a lively city with colors everywhere. I knew this was going to be a good day.

Nice to read. See that American Englisn is already creeping into your writing. Have a nice stay there and see as much as possible. It will certainly not be an every year's visit!

Haha! well, that was a specific choice in this matter, since I am in America. I will enjoy every minute of it. Thanks!!!
