Day two of the US trip is almost over and a mixed day it was, went to Central Park, great place, clean, tidy and free to all ( please note China, public parks should be free ) then onto the Metropolitan Museum, a decent enough museum but at a "suggested " entry fee of $25 it is New Yorks turn to learn, Shanghai Museum is free, the British Museum is free, the Victoria and Albert Museum is free, having said that it is a good place to visit, then onto Times Square, why all the hype? Lots of extra large tv screens advertising things I do not want to buy then onto Brooklyn Bridge and a boat down the East River back to the hotel.
The evening meal was in a Vietnamese bar, food was OK but on the bottom of the bill or check as it is called in the USA was a tip calculator telling you how much 18%, 20% and 22% of the bill, really 22% as a tip when service was indifferent, we only had service 4 times, one to bring the menu, one to take the order, one to bring the order and one to bring the bill, why does that deserve another 22%, what a strange custom, to me tips are a reward for good service, not an extra for doing your job to the minimum requirements, strange place this America.
