Heading back through the Holland Tunnel.

There is so much to see in NYC and we are short on time so we decided on a bus tour of the city. We did a lot of drive byes and made several stops at some of the sights. There are masses of people everywhere, both locals and tourists. Our driver maneuvered through a lot of other buses, double parked delivery trucks and a sea of yellow cabs. He had the patience of a saint. We on the other hand held our breath many times. We only saw one accident, a guy in his Audi tried to go around the right side of a bus. He did not make it.

The pictures give you an idea of what we saw. Hard to describe otherwise.

When we were leaving the city Via the Holland Tunnel, it was bumper to bumper, stop and go all the way to Jersey city. Passengers were asking how long till we get back. The driver would only say...."It depends...we have to go through The Holland Tunnel".

It was fun and exciting. We will probably never be back. We are definitely not big city people.
