Having fun in NYC!
I Love New York City! That said, Squirrel and Niece of Squirrel had a marvelous time. Well, at least I think we did. Squirrel of niece is a teenager, so I'm not completely sure about the marvelous time being mutual, but I think a good time was had by all. Banning fast food from our NYC diet seemed like a good idea to this 44 year old, but I think squirrelly niece, I mean Niece of Squirrel, might think differently. Hairspray, Wicked, Central Park, Saks, Tiffany and Co., The Rock Observatory, Staten Island Ferry with views of SOL and Ellis Island, subway rides, NYC pizza, bagels, Junior's cheesecake, Times Square. Those were the biggies with lots of other exciting smallies along the way. One noted event was the large number of Kosovans and Albanians celebrating on Sunday in NYC. Around Times Square there were hundreds of folks in cars with horns blasting which was accompanied by jubilant yelling and waving of Albanian flags which resulted in quite the colorful impromptu parade (and massive traffic jam). How can you not love NYC? Delay in return home not quite as marvelous as our time in NYC, but hey, we had an extra three

hours in NY. Granted they were in LGA, but still NY. But wait, there was more. Three hours in Philadelphia. Again, in the airport! Whoohoo. Makes me excited about our next adventure. Enjoy the pics and follow our Italian adventure which begins next week.
Also, the winner from my future travel trivia question is Dave! But Vanessa and Windie get honorable mention. Hence, there will be a great prize for Dave and semi-great prizes for Vanessa and Windie.
