sights of New York

Home from my trip now, I look back with nostalgia on the nearly-four weeks spent travelling the United States. I loved all of it- the sights, the sounds and the experiences. I took lots of photos, and while I won’t bore you with them all here! I thought I’d give you a glimpse of what we saw.
New York was everything you hear about, and more. It’s a beautiful big city, full of people and cars and buildings and lights and sounds and smells.

Empire State Building- the colour changed nightly!

Everything is so much bigger, and so much more of it to choose from. It just boggles the mind. This place we went to for an evening meal was called Little Eataly, and had a huge range of delicatessen produce- fruit and vegetables, meats, breads, fish, chocolates…
