I'm back from New York and it was fab, fab, fab! biggrin.gif I have some pictures here if anyone is interested;

Photo Album

The read only password is Photograph.

We did lots of and lots of stuff. I spent most of my time working though which was a bummer and they were 11 hour days too sad.gif Still can't complain as I got a cheap as chips holiday to America. To sum up;

* We went up the Empire State Building (early to avoid the crowds) and nearly froze to death
* We went to Bloomingdales and spent lots of money
* We found Serendipity 3 and had lunch there. The food was soooooooooo nice!
* We wanted to go skating in Central Park but the ice was being treated so we left it sad.gif
* We went to the American Natural History Museum
* We spent lots of time shopping in Greenwich village
* We met a friend from another board and she took us for a meal with 'locals' in Chinatown biggrin.gif
* We went into Tiffany's and didn't buy anything, not surprisingly biggrin.gif
* No tattoo was done as the design wasn't finalised and we simply didn't have the time
* We spent ages in Toys R Us and Virgin (because of Ed I might add) in Times Square
* We tried to catch a show on Broadway but it was booked at least 4 weeks in advance
* We topped the trip off with a boat trip round Manhattan in the freezing cold.

It was much colder than usual while we were there but it only rained once thankfully.

We are planning to go back again soon when we can afford it as we didn't see or do all we wanted to.

As it turns out the same conference is being held in San Francisco next year so perhaps I shouldn't leave Greenleaf laugh.gif

It was too cold for snow. It's a stupid phrase I know but it, meterologically speaking, was sad.gif I'd have loved some snow while we were there but the weather was nice and clear (apart from one day) so I can't complain.

Ed and me are going back soon but it won't be before 2006 as we have Florida, San Francisco and Ireland to do next year already laugh.gif

Serendipity 3 is a tiny, tiny resteraunt where they make ridiculously huge sundaes and tasty diner-like "other food". I've heard of people ordering and eating this "other food" but the ice cream is really so much better. I've been there a few times and I bet pixiegoth can attest to it's wonderfulness a lot better than I.

I was drunk guvnor! Honest! wink.gif

Nosey tongue.gif

Serendipity 3 is a tiny little cafe with an eccentric feel and the yummiest food!

Serendipity 3

Ed had the caviar and sour cream omelet and I had the High Heel Pump sandwich which was brie with smoked ham on some sort of brown raisin bread with a special dip. I can only describe both as deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllliiiiiiiiccccccccccccious! laugh.gif I can still taste that sandwich. It was sooooooooo good.

I also had a Trader Wic's which was a coconut drink with lots of cream. There's a picture of me drinking it in my photo album biggrin.gif

It's 'our place' as we love the movie as we can relate to it so well wub.gif

It did in San Francisco. I was greatly impressed by that, I thought it was just movie makers trying to add atmosphere but it realy does happen. I don't know whether that's because US sewer systems are any better or worse than ours. Ours are ancient (sometimes literally) but I can't imagine that effluent steam, or whatever it is, being let out into the streets is very hygenic.

EDIT: No, apparently I'm half wrong, http://www.newscientist.com/lastword/article.jsp?id=lw38

Most likely it isn't effluent steam, but it is one of the two possible reasons. Steam powered heating can't be very efficient surely? There must be loads of heat lost along the way.

It's funny you should mention that as the first day we were out and about (walking to the Empire State Building) and I made a comment about not quite believing I was in New York. Ed responded by saying he wouldn't be happy until he'd seen smoke coming from the sewers! I made some comment about what about lifting it to see Godzilla's eye and got a funny look so I shut up at that point! laugh.gif

It really does come up through the man hole covers in both places, NY and SF biggrin.gif

Thanks to you both, I think laugh.gif I got that jacket for 25 in Dorothy Perkins last year. It's lasted well. It was perfect for NY as it was nice and chunky enough to be warm but not too warm for popping in and out of shops smile.gif Plus I looked like an eskimo when I had the hood up. Always good to look like an eskimo wink.gif

We were supposed to have some snow in NY before we left but we didn't. Now that would've been so romantic biggrin.gif

They are too tall if you look at them all day and you get a crick in your neck I guess laugh.gif You could tell the tourists apart from the locals by the fact that the tourists were gawping at the high rise buildings and bumping into street signs, almost gettting run over. Not that that happened to me or anything wink.gif
