On Saturday, it snowed. Well I don’t know that it classifies as snow if the flurry melts before it hits the ground. But it’s the first time I’ve seen it, and I was very excited.
I did a bit of window shopping with Damian today when I came across this store and thought of Melanie 🙂
The city also (believe it or not) celebrates St. Patrick’s Day in a big way. Pub crawls, a parade, random bag pipe music in the street, and seriously drunk people.
Last night Damian took me out to a French restaurant for dinner called the ‘Gentleman Farmer’, it was out standing for service and food. I had French onion soup, rabbit cassoulet and creme brûlée for dessert. Sorry no photos, you’ll have to imagine the deliciousness.
Today, Sunday, was Damian’s first official day of sight-seeing and taking photos. I was his personal tour guide for getting around the city and I think I did a mighty fine job. You’ll have to check out Damian’s blog in a week or two, when he has his films developed back home. The main stops today were the Empire State Building, the New York Public Library and Grand Central station.
We’re having dinner at ‘the Lure’ tonight; Damian’s already been there this week with colleagues so I’m looking forward to another great meal.
My sock came sight-seeing today but it stayed in my bag; it is one well travelled sock so far.
