We started in Philly, where I flew to hook up with MG. He was there for work.
the Latest Dish. It was delicious and I fell in love with this drink, the raspberry zinger, not the key lime cocktail (though it looks good) or the dirty ho.
|Once again, I rotated the picture and saved it. Why does it turn it back when I add it to my blog?|
|This was the view from our room on the 36th floor.|
|Jo in Times Square|
|MG very quickly became claustrophobic. Times Square was probably our least favorite place and we stayed clear of it the rest of the trip.|
|It was good we were at a well known stop. It made it easy for me to remember once I was on my own.|
|This is MG and I on the Circle Line Cruise. This was our one and only official "We are tourists" photo.|
|The red, white and blue lights are the top of the Empire State Building.|
|This is what we looked like a little over a week later when she visited for her birthday. Stop laughing. You would also look like this if you broke your dominant arm and elbow and couldn't fix your hair or apply mascara or wear a shirt with sleeves!|
We went to many of the museums, like MoMA, The Museum of Natural History and Hyde Planetarium and the Guggenheim. No trip to NYC would be complete without seeing this Frank Lloyd Wright design!
|And yet, another picture that won't stay rotated the correct way.|
If you are a music lover, it's a must to go here. Well, it was for me anyway. The Dakota House, the site of John Lennon's assassination.
After MG left, I spent the day in Greenwich Village. I enjoyed some quiet time reading in Washington Square Park and watching the street performers. I walked around and I got the most awesome pedicure. Honestly, I have never had ANYONE massage my feet and calves the way this woman did. I was in heaven!
|Cool that Greenwich Village named a street after my husband! Coincidentally, when I was in college, I had a boyfriend who lived on this street. I tried to find his apartment, but that was 20 years ago and, well, my memory just is not that good.|
|I probably don't need to explain at this point that something is screwy with importing rotated pictures.|
That brings you to the end of my/our trip. It was fun, it went fast and we had a blast. I then moved to my new hotel for BlogHer, met my roommate, hung with her and attended the BlogHer events, and well, we all know what happened there.
