I have not posted for a couple of weeks because my wife and I took a quick trip to the USA. I will get back to finishing my tales about Asia but I wanted to get this trip to the east coast of the USA off my agenda.
A trip to the new York Area should always include a visit here. It is just too iconic to pass up. When foreigners ask me what they should see when the go to America, I always say, Big Sur and The Jersey Shore. A continent, and a world apart.
This is one of the two things the Jersey Shore is famous for.
This is the other.
Combine the two and you get this. This is a my sis-in-law’s husband doing what I felt like doing after a few hours of doing the shore.
A trip to NYC should always include a look at Central Park.
My wife and I decided to take a carriage ride through the park. I had never been inside Central Park before so I enjoyed seeing things like Strawberry Fields and a dozen other sights famous for being in movies.
A chill ran down my spine, (well not really) when I saw this building from the park. I will leave it to you to figure out why. Comment if you get it.
FAO Schwartz is a wonderful toy store of lore and reputation. It is right next to Central Park. I do not suggest visiting it with a child in tow!
This is my wife trying to keep me out of MY favorite toy store! The Apple Store is right in front of FAO Schwartz. I suggest you do not enter with your credit card!
Now, while visiting the USA, there is one thing I always be sure to do.
Seeing a Baseball game is mandatory. This is the best sport in the world, and missing a chance to see a game while in the USA is like missing the Taj while in India.
Thanks for reading. Share with a FB friend because that raises my readership and my Klout score!
Stay tuned for more of Burma!
