Abdullah and his son aboard Amtrak. New York, New York here we come!
American Bedu enroute to New York with her guys!
During our life in the United States Abdullah and I traveled at every available opportunity. Due to the close proximity of New York City from Washington, DC and the ease of taking the Amtrak train directly into Manhattan, we made multiple trips to New York.
We enjoyed a weekend away of Broadway, fine dining and exploring the vast pockets and neighborhoods which made New York New York.
Abdullah and I took great pleasure in seeing Aida on Broadway. When his son was visiting we made a trip and took him to see “Phantom of the Opera.”
New York is a favored tourist destination of Saudis to America. My stepson was mesmerized by Times Square, Hyde Park, The Plaza hotel, the Empire State Building and so much more.
We all enjoyed Little Italy and Chinatown. We loved our trip around the Statue of Liberty and to Ellis Island where I explained to my husband that is where my own heritage in America began.
My stepson described New York as the city which never fell asleep and a place every Saudi should visit.
More times square…
