we had a wonderful time in the big apple. my sister-in-law and niece graciously invited me to go on the band and choir bus trip to new york. a bus trip, a little nervous about the bus but it worked out wonderful. we were dropped and picked up at all destinations it was great. the kids were fun to be around and it was fun to see them take in the big city. we had a tour guided who lived in new jersey (now lives in minnesota) he was very knowledgeable about the area. not to mention he has been doing tours for quite awhile. after leaving our tour he was headed for another tour in hawaii......nice.
anyway back to the trip - it was packed - go go go, which is the way to do it. the plays we saw were wicked and lion king both amazing.
below are a few random photos. the photo above was taken at battery park. the street performers picked 3 of the 4 "volunteers" from our group and i am glad to report - nobody got hurt.
sorry about the crane, everywhere you went in new york there were cranes or scaffolding.
p diddy's vehicle?
didn't see any celebrities, darn. (we did wander thru a photo shoot for ben stiller's new movie - sans ben stiller) so i am pretending this is
bon iver. but he would be wandering the woods of wisconsin, not the concrete jungle of new york.
thanks sue and marissa for letting me tag along, i had a wonderful time!
