It’s Saturday morning here in Jakarta, and Irishman is away at meetings for the next few hours. With him out of my hair I’ve had a chance to sit down at my laptop and go through the past years photos, clearing them up, sorting and deleting which is something that I’ve been meaning to do for ages. It occurred to me the other day that the anniversary of my first blog post is fast approaching and I wanted to do something special to mark it, hence having a sort out of my photos before I embark on my anniversary post.
As I was going through them, I found some pictures that I took in New York back at the beginning of January. This has been a fantastic week for America, and though I don’t normally show my political leanings I am so delighted that Obama has been re-elected. To celebrate this great victory and to thank all the wonderful followers, readers and friends that I have from the States, here are a few pictures of New York, your fantastic city.
Tragically, Irishman developed some mystery illness which subsequently brought our much longed for, and talked about 4 day visit to New York to an abrupt end. We had just one day of sightseeing and sampling the delights of this incredible city before he turned ashen grey, broke out in a fever, and started to hallucinate thereby spending the last 3 days of our visit in bed. If his sickly pallor and sweats were not enough to convince me of his illness, then the fact that he didn’t even notice, or break into an apoplectic rage on hearing the drinks and ice machine rumbling away outside our bedroom, did. Being the loving wife that I am, I on the other hand, couldn’t have been more grateful for it’s proximity as it meant that I had a constant supply of ice and cold water on tap to mop his fevered brow Ahhhh!
