I promise to post a more detailed round-up of this weekend's trip to New York - I'm just too sluggish to do it tonight. But in sum, Lizzy and I had a great time - although too short. My friend Cordelia, whom I met on the trip to Afghanistan, showed us some non-touristy areas of the city. She also introduced us to some great bargain shopping.
Although the city was "invaded" with members of the Navy, Marines and Coast Guard, hardly saw any of them. We took the ferry out to Staten Island where the activities were taking place, but took it right back - there just wasn't enough time to do it all. Which means, an excuse for a return trip.
Enjoy these images of the trip - I promise to add captions sometime this week: NYC May 2006 Photos
