First, to start things off, here is a jazz tune by a very good player. Mostly for Jona, but anybody who likes good music will love it.
Now to more NYC stuff. We climbed the Empire State Building yesterday, but of course not by feet but by elevator...more than 1100 steps ;)
When we got there it was already dark, but perhaps that was better then during day, because we did not have to wait at all, it was (in comparison to the usual lines) really empty and so we had the opportunity to take some really great shots of the New York skyline during night.
Sorry for the tilted images, but .... mh...whatever ;)
When we visited Philadelphia, we took one day to visit Atlantic City and the Jersey Shore, so i could apend one day of 2006 to see the ocean. One of my goals of every year: see the ocean and climb a mountain. So far I made it every year since 2000.
pics of that:
