Jana Mankunas and Mandy Paluczak Take New York

Attention Jana and Mandy go to NYC for Fashion week!

For everyone who is interested, Mandy and me (Jana), are in New York during  fashion week. We will be attending classes and we will be working back stage. So here is our story about our adventure.  We will also post some pictures and video.   So we started our big adventure Friday. We left Lambert at 11:30am. The flight was good. We arrived in NYC around 3:00pm.  Well, let me tell you nothing prepared us for the cab ride we were and about to embark on. The cab takes off and we both thought ' here we go!'. It was the ride from hell! These drivers are crazy here. You thought Chicago was bad, that's nothing. We had to close our eyes at times because you felt like we could crash at any moment. And the honking. What is up with that! They honk for just the sake of honking. We look in the next lane we are inches from the car next to us. They cut each other off it's unbelievable. Weaving back and forth in the lanes, slamming the brakes on and the constant honking. It really makes you appreciate St. Louis drivers. We are courteous. Well needless to say we made it to the hotel. YEAH!!!!! Later that nite we went to Salon Prive' where they filled us in on what we would be doing tomorrow back stage. But on the way to the salon we did go through China town. Now that's a crazy place. Every few feet guys or women whispering purses, rolex and wallets. Very shady we were scared to try to buy any. haha
