Sep 30, 2013 - New York City

My first stop on my worldwide tour post-California living was New York City to celebrate the engagement of my best friend and her wonderful fiancee. I always feel like when I am in NYC I am rushed to see all my friends and catch up with everyone, so this time I gave myself ample time to enjoy the city. During the time I was there I strolled along the streets in the shopping districts, enjoyed the people watching and even hit up two historical sites that I have been very interested to visit. On my first day in town, I went straight to the...

Aug 26, 2013 - New York, New York

Depart: Cape Cod Arrive: New York City Unevenful drive today, but we did have rain some of the way. Had a thunderstorm this evening but they have changed the weather forecast for tomorrow to sun and clouds from thundershowers. Happy about that. August 27th WOW! WOW! WOW! The 1st wow goes to Ray and I for negotiating both a train station, a transfer and a subway into Penn Station. For a pair of small city folks we did pretty good, didn't get lost once and caught the right trains/subways both ways 1st time. The 2nd wow goes to the NOISE, the...

Aug 25, 2013 - New York

@@@@@@@ BACKGROUND It’s hard to believe that this is our sixth visit to New York. We first came in 1990 with our young children Adia and Raj and then there was a long break until 2008 when we planned on meeting up with Anil’s older brother and his wife when they came to visit their son Puneet and his wife Komal. Near the end of our stay, our daughter Adia and her husband Geoff, came to join the crowd and act as a bit of a tour guide to the ‘seniors’. KAPOORS ON THE ROAD We always look forward to seeing Puneet, Komal and Anya but the fact...

Aug 18, 2013 - Our off Broadway performance

Our base for our stay in New York was a small apartment in the basement of a building in West 108 Street in Upper West Side on Manhattan. We were only about 100 metres from Broadway on one side and the same from Riverside Park which runs along the Hudson River. It was about 15 minutes by subway from Times Square and about an half an hour walk to Central Park so was a very convenient location. Our apartment was small with a bed sitting room, a very small kitchenette but a decent bathroom. The building footprint was very small - about 15...

Aug 17, 2013 - Excited to Leave New York City!

I am ready to leave! We finally packed after making lists. All my clothes are packed, airtight, in Ziploc bags. It took a while! I think I overpacked... We have one more day at home in NYC and at around 4:30 Monday morning I will have to wake up to go to the airport (Newark of course). I am so excited for this adventure!!!

After our wonderful trip to Quebec we headed off to the United States.

( well compared to the usual fast food along the way) not too many dramas crossing the border though we did have to all get out fill in more paperwork and get fingerprinted.....i had just put on handcream so they had to redo mine and check my credentials! We travelled through Massachusetts into Connecticut and arrived at Hartford. ..massive...

Aug 6, 2013 - Back to the USA! New York, New York!

We got up at 5:30AM and were out of the campground at 6:30 on our way to Tonawanda for our oil change via the Rainbow Bridge back to the USA. I was not ready with my camera and missed a great photo of both falls from the bridge. In spite of our dry run the day before, we missed a sign alerting us that the height limit 11'8” on an upcoming tunnel. And we are 12'5.5” tall! Ther only way to avoid the low overpass was a ramp on the left so we took it and ended up back on the highway. All of a sudden we were back on Lasalle Expressway E – right...

Aug 5, 2013 - New York and Home

Tuesday, July 30th After an extra day in Rome at the Airport Hilton, we were well rested for the long flight to New York. We enjoyed a phenomenal breakfast buffet at the hotel with the largest selection we have seen yet in Italy, we had to hustle to get to the US/Israel terminal and go through all the hoops for a flight to the US. The US and Israel share a separate terminal with added security measures and booking steps which adds some time to the checking in process. After clearing security, we were loaded onto buses and driven back to the...

Jul 28, 2013 - Play Beach and Play Ball

Our time back East comes to an end. What a way to close out the visit. We spent a great weekend with Deb & John at the beach. It was so clean, quiet, and relaxing. Walking the edge of the surf, eating, drinking, and reading under the shade of an umbrella. Deb & John are the Masters of beach logistics - up to and including the special auger for implanting the umbrellas so as to ensure their impregnable stature in frequent beach wind gusts. They have it down to a science. On Sunday Deb invited me to join her at a Mets game (baseball) at...

Jul 25, 2013 - Rockefeller Center, The U.N. & J.P. Morgan

We decided to do a guided tour of Rockefeller Center, so took the subway into Manhattan after rush hour. Our tour guide, Mike from Minnesota, was celebrating his birthday. He'd gone to the Apple to pursue an acting career and fell in love with the city. The acting career morphed into guiding tours at Rock Center, which he's done for 35+ years. He decided that morning to do a 'His Favorites' tour. Particularly he wanted to show us aspects of Rockefeller Center (RC) that most people, including employees at the various buildings, are not even...

Jul 23, 2013 - Exploring more of the Apple core

We continued our exploration of the Big Apple, and it is BIG. There is such a variety of things to do, see, taste, and learn about. Travelling via the subway system is like travelling the world. Within one trip in one subway car you'll hear a dozen different conversations, in as many languages, and none are English. The neighborhoods in the different boroughs provide a culinary cornucopia. The most difficult decision is - what shall we try today ? Though not on the time scale of a Rome, the architectural variety in NYC is very impressive....
