No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth. I’ve been in New York for the past four days, briefly attending BEA (the American booksellers’ convention) and then being a tourist with my friend Terrri Blackstock. We did all the tourist things we’d never done before–we took a bike tour (someone else pedaled) around Central Park, we took a tour bus around the city, we went to the top of the Empire State Building, and we took the Staten Island Ferry to ride past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. And we ATE–New York pizza, New York Cheesecake, New York deli foods. And we also walked miles and miles, learned how to navigate the subway (thank the Lord for iPhone apps), and we shopped a wee bit–honestly, only a little bit. 🙂
The hubby and I are going back to NYC during December, so now I’ll know my way around a little better and I know what I still need to see–a lot! I want to go to the museums and the zoo and so much more . . .
I’ll post some pictures once I have a chance to get home and unload everything. Until then . . . if I can (beat) make it there, I’ll make it (beat) anywhere . . . (or bus driver played that a LOT.)
