A Breather...

Times Square - New York
Times Square - New York

After a hectic one and a half weeks of sightseeing, eating and drinking, my cousin finally flew out of New York last night bound for London. I was a little teary eyed when I saw her off at the airport, but at the same time I was glad she finally saw New York, and how I've been living my life here.

We spent a few days wandering around and taking in the sights and smells. There was the obligatory hot dog from a street vendor, the $20 manicure & pedicure, having our make up done at the make up counters in Macy's, the Staten Island ferry to see the Statue of Liberty, and of course a stroll around Times Square.

We headed off to Vegas after a few days to unwind and try our luck at the casinos. As for how much we won on the slots and blackjack tables, errr...let's just say we had fun but I'm glad we're back in NY ;)

So now I'm sitting here on the couch, a day after Thanksgiving, sipping a cup of tea and writing this entry. J's sister is in town for a few days, so there will be more photos opps, but for the time being here are some taken during my cousin's visit. Enjoy.
