The 39 Steps show was fab. It was, of course, a Hitchcock homage. But it had the manic energy of Monty Python and the delightful delight of English farce. I'm so glad our Ave Q program had a 1/2 off "bookmark" in it so that we were encouraged to see it.

I decided that I needed a morning off, so after breakfast Russell headed out to wander and I went back to the room and sat around reading. And trying to reach We Fix Macs to pay for my computer which is fixed in case someone can pick it up for me. (I asked [livejournal.com profile] saffronrose.)

Then I went out and met Russell at Pret a Manger to have lunch. It is nothing like it is in the UK but it was okay. Then we did the tour of Radio City Music Hall which was fun. They are getting ready for the NBA draft picks this weekend so we didn't get into the main hall. I'd love to see the Rockettes extravaganza sometime, but the idea of coming here in winter is right out.

Then Russell and I parted and I headed off to the Ache Elegua Botanica (how could I resist a name like that?). It was mostly candles and washes, of course, but they also had a variety of cheap ($10-12) plastic saint and Orixa statues. I got Ogun, Oxum, Xango, Mami Wati and a prieta viejo. And another small Oxossi arrow. Good thing Russell has space in his suitcase!

I was walking back toward the street to catch a bus back our way when I passed a Chinese reflexology/massage place. $20 bought a 20 minute foot massage. OOooooooh, I really needed that. My newly soothed feet were happy that I flagged a cab instead of busses and walking. My feet feel so much better.

I'm just hanging out for now. In a couple of hours we're going to Nios Restaurant across the street.

No, they don't. I looked up all the things named "botanica" in NY and that was the closest one to where we are staying (plus the name). It was really small, attached to an actual pharmacy. I sincerely doubt they'd do mail order or anything.

Ahhhhhh! A foot massage! I can't imagine anything else more perfect than that. As a matter of fact, I'm going to start researching this now for here.
Hope you're still having fun.

Are you going to the Frick museum or the Natural History Museum?
Those were always two of my favorites.

BTW: Tut exhibit coming to the de Young in June.

We did not, we did go back to the Met one more time.

I think that Tut may be the one I went to LA for. Very disappointing. I'll see if I can point you at that blog entry.
