Today is Mummy Steph’s birthday! In the evening we went up the Rockefeller Tower to watch the sunrise, it was the most beautiful evening I think I’ve witnessed. Highly recommended if you’re in New York!
We got the ferry to Staten Island today to get pictures of the lady herself, the Statue of Liberty. It’s a great way to get close view of the front of the statue, and a fun (free!) boat ride! Another day of walking and exploring!
We visited Ground Zero today, the memorial site for the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers. It was a sollum atmosphere, very peaceful and respectful. We spent a lot of today on the hop-on-hop-off NYC tour bus learning more about the areas, but my was it damned cold!

Our full first day in New York City, and what a day it was! It’s Thanks Giving, so we went to watch the Thanks Giving Parade! We’re very lucky the dates we’re here, we get to experience Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Christmas preparations! A lot more photos will be posted to my flickr (www.flickr.com/photos/kultapanda)

T-minus 2 days until New York! I’m beyond excited, yet still haven’t packed.. I’m being all good and healthy though! Normal day at work, only one more day left in the office!
Well I only bloody went and ran 11km! This is definitely not the most attractive photo of me, but give me a break, I ran 11k! I’m so proud, so excuse the ‘braggy’ post today, it’s the only photo I took!
Whilst I haven’t even thought about packing for New York (I’m going for a week this Wednesday!), I’ve made a bit of progress in getting a new (and much warmer) coat! This was the photo I sent to my Mum for final approval.
