Some pictures from a recent Manhattan-Brooklyn Stroll

Greetings from an alien planet. There are hieroglyphics and fences, but one can't tell whether they are meant to keep the inside safe from the outside or the reverse...

Where have the last two weeks gone?

It's been one of those fortnights. You look down, and by the time you look up two weeks have passed! Well, I promise to get back to it soon, with some new posts and updates on my new adventures. Right now it has been more about planning a trip that looks something like this: NY-London-Bombay, Bombay-London-Paris-Benelux-German-Switzerland-London-New York. All simple enough, no?

But the complications... Where to stay in Paris? In Paris I've been pretty lucky with cheap, well-located hotels, but do I want to try my luck with something that is approaching 100 Euros a night? Or should I splash out on something nicer? But why? There are so many better ways to spend that kind of money in Paris. Deep questions with no clear answers.

I've been enjoying a few weekends out in the country (which in my lexicon means anywhere outside New York, so for example it includes other metro areas like DC, Philadelphia, and Boston). One could get used to small town living, especially knowing that one will be back in NYC in a few hours...

Hope all your weekends are going well.

Some musical gems

Some musical gems. The first with thanks to Her Serene Highness Princess St├ęphanie Marie Elisabeth Grimaldi of Monaco and Armand Limnander on the NYT.

And the second with thanks to a friend who wrote the words to this song...



P.S. Here's a riddle for you (or perhaps not). Last night I saw Siegfried & Roy. Without Roy. And without the lions. Post answers (even though there's no question) in the comments section...

Some pictures from Stockholm

Stockholm is an interesting place. As I mentioned last time, they like precise signage in Stockholm, some examples of which you'll below along with a few random snaps...

(The Swedes are strong, silent types. Who needs postcards anyway?)

(This looks like fun!)
(Really out of focus, but the first two look to me like instructions on the latest dance steps.)
