In the last week we have covered lots of ground indeed! We sailed across to Staten Island, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. We walked miles around Manhattan, through Little Italy, down Fifth Avenue, and through Times Square. We went in an incredibly grand lift in Tiffany's, rode the subway, and took a yellow cab across the city.
There was the long flight home, followed by a few days commuting to work on the train. Then this weekend there has been a good few hours in the car travelling to Cambridge and back for a friend's birthday.
Now, the passports are away, the bags are unpacked, and after a fabulous week of planes, trains, automobiles, and some boats too, we are home, and enjoying the prospect of staying in one place for a while.
