I got up, and went to McDonalds for breakfast. After that I went up to the tours office and bought myself a ticket for the downtown tour. This is a guided tour by bus, and goes to all the major sights. I went to the bus stop and got on. The tour was interesting, but I found that I was gradually getting more and more tired. By about half way through, I was practically falling asleep, so I got off and went back home via the subway.
The New York subway looks like the London Underground about 30 years ago. There's quite a lot of graffiti, and the trains are old and noisy. They do have air conditioning though, which makes a change from London. When I got back to the hostel, I dozed for a few hours, and then decided to try the tour again.
I was getting quite hungry by this time, and when we got to Chinatown I asked the tour guide if I had time to get off and have a meal, and he said that the last tour bus goes past this spot at about 7pm, so I had plenty of time. I got off, and found a nice Chinese resturaunt which served me chicken with crispy noodles, which was delicious. After that I bought myself a phonecard to call home with, and took a stroll down through Chinatown.
There were tons of stalls selling ripped-off films and fake watches really cheaply, and I bought myself some nice Chinese ornaments. Then I went back to catch the rest of the tour, and got there in plenty of time, as 6:40. By 7:00 there was no tour bus. By 7:20 there was still to tour bus, so I gave up, and took the subway back to the hostel.
