Prior to settling here in New York, it was for a lot of years that I was coming here as a tourist. I made New York my playground because of the allure of shopping and the beat of the city. I would visit other states every time, but New York was always part of the itinerary. As I have been told, the best way to explore the city is on foot, and that was what I exactly did on my first ever visit. Never did it come across my mind that I could have joined one of those New York tours. Being a city girl myself in Manila, I had no qualms exploring on my own with the aid of my sister’s numerous instructions and armed with my trusty subway map and New York city map. That is exactly the reason why I had to keep walking one afternoon looking for the Madame Tussuads New York Wax Museum. I must have walked tons of miles only to realize that I reached as far as Chinatown on foot. I must have been enjoying the sights as I never thought to stop and call my sister to ask. At the end of the day, I finally realized I was not going anywhere near the museum. I took the C train back to Penn Station to take the Long Island railroad to go home. My legs were soar for the next three days, and I was the laughing stock in the household for the rest of the night.
