Another recent visitor from England saw us hitting the tourist trail with a vengeance. As a first time visitor to NYC she had a long list of must-sees, and we were happy to offer the benefit of our experience of the city too. It was lovely to reconnect whilst seeing the sights, and her interests meant that we had some new experiences as well as revisiting old favourites.
Having just returned to NY after a couple of ridiculously busy weeks in England, a lazy Saturday was very much in order. The weather was beautifully warm and sunny so a walk in Central Park seemed to be just the thing (after a breakfast of coffee and waffles, of course).
A question which has been on our minds lately is how do (or should) British people living in America celebrate the Fourth of July? A brief survey amongst some of our expat acquaintances highlighted food, flag cake and fireworks, so that’s exactly what we did…
Despite it being near the top of our shortlist of possible places to move to, and just a short walk across the park from our current location, other than a couple of brief forays we hadn’t spent any time at all on the Upper West Side. Last weekend we decided to remedy this – in the end we found ourselves there on both Saturday and Sunday – and I’m very glad that we did.
