Waiting for a miracle

This picture was taken in front of the hostel that I stayed for 2 weeks in NYC. I did traveling to NYC for 19 days, and I stayed in a hostel in Manhattan. I suppose to have an accommodation from the company that I applied for doing the internship, but they canceled the appointment when I already arrived in NYC, so I stayed almost a month there waiting for my next flight. At that time, I didn't have enough money to pay the hostel. So, I did check out without known where to go. I stand outside in the cold winter, waiting for a miracle. After waiting for a couple hours, suddenly my brother send me a text that he send money to me. It was a huge miracle for me, I went back to the hostel and did check in.
