感恩節，傳統老美家庭團聚的日子! 當然，對於孤家寡人又漂泊在異鄉的我，其實對這種日子是很頭痛又不想面對的! 不過，因為有你們，讓我的感恩節過得很豐富! 心中滿滿的甘溫!!
早上五點出發到紐約，和Chrissy會合後，就卡在57街附近看遊行了，基本上，想動也動不了，這人潮之多，大概和大陸春運差不多吧 ! 被擠在後頭的我們，只能看到大型造型氣球，看不到底下的遊行 !
(其實很想拿個大火鍋往前衝，火花四冒地吆喝，"燙喔~燙喔~船上人叫了大火鍋，燙到不負責喔! " )----我又在講相聲段子了......
但金麟豈是池中物 ? 一個箭步，看到前面的老美閃開後，三步併兩步地攀上了地鐵入口處的欄杆，頓時豁然開朗，遊行盡收眼底!! ( 很多人也都這樣做阿! 我只是跟著做而已啊....)
晚餐後，前往Best Buy去湊黑色星期五的熱鬧，長長的人龍到了12點後緩緩移動，把Best Buy擠得水洩不通，大家拿商品像是不要錢一樣地搬!很受不了擁擠的我，馬上就出來了.... 後來，到Macy's 看看 ! 果不其然，Macy's也是被擠得爆炸! 我看這一天，應該是老美工作最認真的一天吧! 此時，我已經受不了一整天東奔西跑的折磨了，只好拜託博昌帶我回家睡覺，就不和他們去夜店續攤了!
隔天一早起床，馬上趕赴Byrant Park溜冰，這是我的第一次溜冰 ( 誰叫我都不去之前的員工旅遊---小巨蛋溜冰....)，USD 14 滑到你爽! 所以我們就滑了快三小時，不過.... 我只有摔倒和緩緩前進的份......
回到Hartford後，去看了第一場的大學曲棍球比賽! 有同事Batman Chris的講解 (他本身就有在打)，讓我對曲棍球有更好的了解! 很幸運地.... 看到他們在打架，還打了好幾次! 曲棍球本身就是個很Physical的運動，打出火氣來，其實也不意外! 另外，看到他們大學比賽已經接近職業化的包裝，就很感嘆，台灣的職業運動一直還停留在殺豬公的階段......
Thanksgiving , a traditional festival for American family reunion .However , as a lonely expatriate, that would be the last thing I want to face . However , because of you guys , my thanksgiving was filled with fun and warmth.
Once-a-year Macy’s parade ,held by Macy’s in NYC , is an great spark in Thanksgiving . After discussing with Chrissy and Bo-Cang , I finally got done with my schedule and the place to crash .Bidding an apology to Felicia’s invitation . Let’s hit the road !
Setting out at dawn from Hartford, and meeting with Chrissy . We rushed to the parade ,only to got stuck at the 57th Street . At that point of time , the parade route had been deluged with people , what the hell the crowd come from !? With such crowd in front , we saw nothing but the floating balloon in the air .
However , Amao is not a easy guy to be hit . Just in a blink of eye , I climbed all the way up the fence of the subway’s entrance . ha ! What a wide view ! ( Many guys did so , I just followed suit ! )
Joe’s Shanghai , a very famous restaurant in China town of NYC , is the place where I had my dinner with Bo-Chang and his Japanese and Chinese roommates .However , although the long queue took us so long , the dishes are…….. beyond description…. ………except for dumplings . ( Don’t think it in traditional way ….you could feel better )
We turned to Best Buy for black Friday sales after dinner . When the clock tolls at 12:00 , Best Buy was immediately packed with people who seem to take items for free . I got out soon because it is too crowded and I can’t bear the physical feeling .
Next stop , Macy’s ! It was completely the same in Macy’s . Today is supposed to be the day U.S. retailer employee work hardest. God ! I can’t take it anymore after a whole day ‘s torture . I decided to be a wet blanket for Bo-chang . Begging him to take me home for sleeping , I gave up the following night club trip .
Skating is what’s on the next day . Byrant park is where we went to skate ! Just costs USD 14 .. That’s the first time I’ve skated . Haha , although we spent three hours skating , all I can do was fell over and slow move-on .
Back to Hartford , A college Hockey game was waiting ! With Batman Chris ‘s explanation , I got no trouble in watching Hockey . We were even so lucky to see they have a few physical fights . Moreover , I can’t help sigh for the development of the professional sport in Taiwan after seeing even U.S. college sport can be marketed in quasi-professional way .
Anyway , Many thanks to you guys .
