Staying? Going?

Its all over now, today we are supposed to fly back to Sydney. We checked out of the hotel at around 2pm so then we were left to walk around Union square until it was time to go to the airport. So we have lunch at this place called "Wendy's" which is a fast food burger place like a cross between Maccas and KFC. Wendy's has somehow made fast food much less appealing, partly because American fast food generally just feels more fatty, and also the number of Homeless people charging in and wolfing down a burger whenever they collect enough change. Annny...way after that we walked around a store called Macy's, sort of comparable to Myer in Aus. Then went on to visit CompUSA, by the time we walked back to the hotel it wasn't long before the limo rocked up, then Michael rushed us out the door and we were off to the airport with plenty of time to spare...about 2:30-3:00 hours of it. While checking in at the United counter the attendant mentioned they were looking for VDPs because the flight was over booked. So we decided just to check in as normal and decide later. About an our later we decided that US200 + Upgrade to business + paid accommodation was reason enough to stay for another day. So William and I went up to put our names on the list, Michael really wanted to go so...he went home on that flight. So in the end we waited another 4 hours at the airport, this time included the UA people eventually getting our bookings correctly redone and waiting for our baggage, oh and the freak'n candy machine eating my dollar! We arrived at the hotel at around 12:00-12:30 checked in showered and crashed out.
