New York

I went to New York during the summer of 2008. It was a dream come true. My friend Tara and I flew down and spent 10 luxurious days doing whatever pleased us. She went to 3 – 5 Broadway shows a day, and I wandered around Manhatten pretending I was a local.

The highlights of this trip included walking around Times Square, seeing the city from the top of the Empire State Building, seeing Avenue Q on Broadway, getting in trouble at the Metropolitan Museum, standing next to Dum Dum at the American Museum of Natural History, the cruise we took around Manhattan, being in the audience for a tv show, and getting completely lost in Central Park.

A beautiful cathedral that I saw on my bus tour. Can’t recall it’s name, but it was so pretty I had to take a picture.

This shirt has a funny story. We went down to the pier to see a sailing ship. I ate something that, surprise surprise, ended up on my white shirt. So I had to buy a new shirt. So I didn’t look slovenly.
