I can’t hear you up here…

Today was a clear, mind-numbingly cold day here in New York, so what did we do? Why, we went to see the Statue of Liberty, of course! It meant taking an unheated ferry across to wind-swept Liberty Island where we bravely traipsed around the statue and attempted to snap some pictures in the few seconds we could bear to have our gloves off.

We also went to the Strand bookshop which, though it’s certainly no Powell’s, is pretty great (if a bit oddly organized and grumpily staffed).

This evening, after a quick nap and a warm-up, we went to see Avenue Q which was very good and very funny!

Tomorrow, Christina heads home to Ottawa and Claire and I head off to London and the UK! See you there!
