Well yesterday was our first day in New York after a very long trip from Brisbane. It was an action packed one with a trip to Liberty Is to see the Statue of Liberty, a visit to the 9/11 memorial site, 'riding' the subway, Central Park, a drama workshop, dinner at Sardi's plus the incidental sight seeing experiences of this city.
The photo is at Battery Park, the area where we caught the ferry to Liberty Is. It is being redeveloped after the recent Hurricane. The fountains you can just see spurting water are similar to the Kings Bch fountain, for those of you familiar with Caloundra.
It has been fantastic so far. People are friendly & the weather is good- sunny & warm. The students participated so well in the 90minute drama workshop despite jet lag kicking in. The teachers needed coffee to help in that!
Today is not quite as hectic. We have a visit to the Rockefeller centre, hopefully a visit to the Guggenheim museum, a tour of Radio City Music Hall & some free time. Did I mention we are only a block from Macy's!!!
