Last time I was at the Thanksgiving parade seventeen years ago. Less than half a year before I arrived in New York. I understood almost nothing about the life here, I know nothing about New York and know almost nobody in this city except my family. It was a very cold and sunny day seventeen years ago. I felt alone and out of place. I did not pay much attention to the parade - I was trying not to lose my teenage daughter in the crowd. Seventeen years passed and I was at the Thanksgiving parade for the second ( and I hope not for the last ) time in my life. I felt completely comfortable, laughed and chatted with people near me. The young guy standing near said to me : "I'm from Argentine. I love the parade. And where are you from?" And I proudly answered : "I'm from New York!" .
Here you can find my old post about Macy's Thanksgiving parade that I published last year ago. And below you can enjoy the pictures that I did today several hours ago on the 88th Macy's thanksgiving parade.
