I Have A Bridge To Sell You / Tengo Un Puente Para Venderte

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

FOR THE FIRST time in my life, I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a blast. I have plenty of photos to share but this one will have to do for now. Another tourist stopped me on the bridge to take a picture of him and he then offered to return the favor. I walked around Lower Manhattan, had lunch at Starbucks (for the free WiFi) and then walked back. It was more than 6 miles round trip and I'd do it again!

POR PRIMERA VEZ en mi vida, anduvé por el Puente de Brooklyn. Que era una maravilla. Tengo un montón de fotos para compartir, pero esta tendrá que hacer por ahora. Otro turista me paró en el puente para tomar una foto de él y luego se ofreció a devolver el favor. Caminé por Manhattan, almorcé en Starbucks (para el WiFi gratuito) y luego anduvé de regreso. Fue más que 10 kilómetros ida y vuelta y lo haría de nuevo!

  3. I've never walked on a bridge that big, I get a little freaked out on smaller ones with traffic
