Rochester By Night – 12 Photos

Rochester by night 5.

Rochester by night 5.

I’m sitting here on the 11th floor of the Double Tree hotel after a long day. I’m not as tired as I usually am at this time.  I think I’m finally over my jet lag.  Took long enough, I’ve been here 8 days now.  I was really tired last night and slept around 9 pm and woke up at 8 am!  Nice!  My usual wake up time has been around 5 am in the last few days.

Today was a good day.  I had lots of energy and was in a good mood.  As usual I spent the day with my father in the hospital room.  He was in a good mood and I feel quite optimistic about his condition.  After leaving the hospital I went for a short walk.

I had some sushi in a nearby Japanese fusion restaurant, and then went for a walk.  It was freezing but very enjoyable.  As I was walking a lady called out to me “Hey!  Really nice hat!”  “Thank you very much!” I replied.  That made me feel even better – nothing like a complement to improve your mood even more. When you’re bald like me, you gotta wear a hat in the winter.

While walking I stopped a few times to breathe in the pure, cold, refreshing air.  I loved it!  It really felt nice.  I took some photos as well, which I’ll share with you in a moment (Bear in mind they were taken from my phone).

I walked into a Barnes and Noble book store and was mesmerised.  It was stunning!  One of my favourite things is to walk around in a bookshop.  I could spend hours in one.  This B&N was really nice and I spent over 40 minutes in it.  I resisted very hard to buy any books.  My backlog of books is massive (probably close to 100 books) and I have another massive wish list on Amazon.  I bought several books with me on this trip and last thing I need is more books.  So I resisted the temptation quite well.  I did buy two magazines though, Forbes and Entrepreneur.  The books store used to be a cinema apparently.

Anyway, I left and walked for another few minutes and then made my way back to the hotel.  I’m feeling really good and have a smile on my face 🙂

Here are the photos…

Talk to you soon.
