The city that never sleeps. From the time you set foot in NYC you can feel the energy and frenzy of the city. I personally find it intoxicating and coming from a small country it can also be overwhelming. All those iconic symbols of capitalism are littered throughout the city letting you know invariably that you are indeed in the cradle of free enterprise. The heart of any city however is its people and as I walked about the city I sensed a rod of strength. It was not a rude indifference that has become synonymous with large bustling cities, but a hardiness that comes from the challenges of urban life. Needless to say that they were all in motion walking with a purpose headed to the next destination.
