The Ball Drop

Can you imagine what it feels like to be crammed in the same spot on the same street for 8 hours? It was killer. The first countdown they did was to 'celebrate' that we only had 6 hours left standing on the street until midnight. I seriously thought we were going to have to leave. We did have a great view of the ball drop though and they did put some good entertainment on. Carley ray Jepson, psy and Taylor swift kept us going along with a few cool people we were stood next to.
7 countdowns later and the clock struck midnight. I really didn't think it was ever gonna come. It was an amazing experience though when all the confetti came down and everyone was 'happy new yearing' I'm glad we went but I'm also glad we will never ever have to do it again. Like ever.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy New Year to you my lovely!

Sounds like a bit of a long stand to wait for the bells but glad you managed to stick it out...must have been an amazing vibe!

Hope you find some tea bags! When I was in the states I found a few shops selling Lipton English Breakfast which was the closest I could find :)

Sounds like you are having a wonderful time.
