Back from the Island (the Manhattan one)

Post by SomeArztOnYou on Thu Jul 24, 2008 12:22 pm

After being away for a few days visiting the Big Apple, I am back. Got some nice pictures which I'll have to post at some point. One of the things I got to see while in the city was a filming of the Colbert Report (Tuesday night's show), and I actually got to shake the man's hand. Good to be back, though!

Me and Starbuck just went there in February. Great city but I do prefer it in the summer. Mostly because I can look at Starbuck and say "What an incredible smell you've discovered..."

You boys need to talk to Stich about NYC. He is coming to the US for vacation & he is not even going to make a quick trip through the crossroads of the world. I tried, but he was sold on Disneyworld!! Like a Star @ heaven

Stitch, If you are going to Disney (blech) world then at least take the short drive to Kennedy Space center and go see the Saturn-V rocket...not only is it indoors, fully restored and mind boggling in it's shear size and audacity but standing under it will make you feel like you have a really tiny...never mind, go see it. It's cool.

Other places cooler than Disney:
NYC
New Orleans
Miami
L.A.
San Francisco
Cleveland Ohio (I'm not kidding)
San Diego
Niagara Falls
My garage
a landfill
a half full-septic tank (or is that half-empty)

Me no likey Disney

Those are terrific pictures SAOY. So nice you were able to see so many fun things! We lived near NY for a while, before moving to the Sunshine State. NYC has a j'nais quoi to it that is so vibrant. Nothing like a "Dirty Water Hotdog" from a pushcart, the scent of fresh roasted chestnuts on a cold day, or fabulous salted pretzels! NY definately has it's own flavor!

I loved seeing London, Edinburgh, San Francisco, the Grand Canyon, Bermuda (cruise ship and by air) and would like one day to visit Australia and New Zealand.

Disney is a fun place for children, and the child in us, and we liked it best when staying at Disney rather than "near Disney". Wonder if they'd ever make a "LOST Park"? Smile
