The Statute Of Liberty Bell Ends

We have just got back from the worst statue based experience of my life. Imagine a prison camp full of Nazi Jobsworths, hours, literally, of queues and all for something that looks much more impressive from a distance. Up close she is a squat and unremarkable form, not twice as tall as the Gateshead Angel.

Avoid like the plaque.

Mind you, we are still having a great time!

An Amercian Road Trip (With Disney/Waterparks)

I'm currently in the Big Apple, the American one, not Truro. The last time I was here I was 19, gosh that seems so long ago....

Its a family trip, with extended family, eight in all.

New York is great. Some observations so far.

  • I'm shocked by the racial segregation here. There are the whites, who are served by the non-whites. Its economic/employment apartheid.
  • Latina's have very big tatoos and are all very sexy. Everyone of them.
  • It is possible to get a Coffee that has more calories than a burger.
  • NYC is much bigger on foot than on the map.
  • Jaywalking is illegal, but its fine to do.
  • NYPD should go to the Gym more.
Start spreading the news, I'm leaving tomorrow......
