The first … Read More

I have had two very different Christmas’s this year. Christmas #1- New York, Long Island Italian Christmas.We started the day in Harlem with a brunch of pancakes (gluten-free, of course), turkey bacon, maple syrup and eggs, before taking the subway and having a short stroll through a snowy Central Park. We then caught the subway to Penn station and then … Read More

New York to Toronto

LauraUncategorized0 Comments

I am now at Chez Christine in Toronto, a lovely guesthouse in the north of the city. 😉 Not really a guest house. I am being wonderfully hosted by my parents friends from their Hongkong days – over 32 years ago. They picked up a tired and migrainey Laura at Toronto International airport about midday. Too many New York late … Read More

Yesterday was Feelin’ Groovy on the 59th St Bridge (a song I forgot to put in my New York collection). Today, dinner was at an Italian Restaurant – Billy Joel really is the soundtrack for New York. What can I say, I’m in a New York state of mind… Unfortunately, it was just me and Bec, as Matt went off … Read More

Yesterday dawned snowless against all predictions, but by 10am it was sleeting down and by midday, the roads were a few inches deep. We decided a day at the Museum of Natural History was the way to go and braved the elements to slither our way to the subway. The subway stops right at the MONH, and the subway station … Read More

“A cold and wet December day, I touched the ground in JFK…” (Ok, I’ve been REALLY wanting to write that!) and I’m in Harlem. (No Photos today – dodgy hostel computers again – too difficult and there’s not much around the hostel).Two very tiring days.

The good, the bad and the ugly… Just out of interest, I am sitting typing this in web-warung (forgotten the english) that is playing “Gay top 40”. This is an interesting town… After doing so well on public transport alone yesterday, I thought I’d do the same today. I thought a quiet day was in order after all the tramping … Read More
