And we're up to Monday!
I have really enjoyed seeing so much of NYC over the last 3 days, but I must say I've done so much that my brain has fried in the process. Tomorrow is a bit of rest before things begin.
Today I did what I'd recommend to every tourist - take the 3-hour Circle Line boat tour around the island. It's a great way to get some photos, learn about the city, see the different areas, and have a great time. Some photos from today are below - note I have tons more pics but these were with my cell phone:
Statue of Liberty:
Following that great 3-hour adventure, we went to Katz deli in the Village. Wow. Best pastrami EVER. And they do mail order. I may have to look into this! And for those of you movie buffs, this was the diner where they filmed the famous scene in "When Harry Met Sally" - the one where Meg Ryan screams in ecstasy to make a point...and afterward a waiter asks another customer what she wants and the woman replies, "I'll have what she's having."
St. Patrick's Cathedral on 5th Avenue - gorgeous church, designed by the same man who designed much of the Smithsonian in Wash DC.
Here is an earlier shot of Times Square:
Some more posts to come - there's a lot of things I've been thinking about this week in terms of how differently our misconceptions are about others compared to what we really experience for ourselves. But meanwhile, have a great week and I'll be learning lots at a conference!
