Have a look at the web site. I've added an email from a friend of Sandra's who has just spent three months in New York. Her views of the Big Apple are an absolute riot.

Laugh and enjoy!

I was going to send this message to a number of you privately since it really has nothing directly to do with AWADTalk, but when I realised the number I'd have to PM, I decided to risk the Wrath of AnnaS and do it here

I just finished the Washington, D.C. installment and I must warn you--there is a groupie in the making!

You picked a hot day to visit but I can see it has not fried the wordy part of your brain...still wonderful, still evocative images!
So I thank my lucky star that on that momentous day Tuesday, April 24 16:23:19 2001 you decided to risk life and limb to share your travel journals with us.
May the god of travel keep a very good eye on you and protect you from all travelling harm

Thanks WC for the kind words. And, as a special bonus, I've just put the third last instalment up. More in about 48 hours ...

an IMAX film about flight in the theatre at the museum .... got motion sickness. I rather dislike paying to be made ill (except when Iím buying beer, of course), and we are now firmly of the opinion that IMAX is not all itís cracked up to be. They throw up huge format movies on the screen and the audience throws up pop corn on the floor.

I know what you mean, CK Ė but I therefore suggest you avoid Franceís leading tourist attraction Futuroscope like the plague!

A single IMAX is to a dinghy on a millpond like Futuroscope is to a cruise ship going over Niagara. For anyone else, I can warmly recommend it Ė the combined display of pyrotechnics, lasers and cinema over shallow pools of water at the end of the evening is stunning! It also cleverly manages to tie together all the elements of light and dark, image and imagination, and truth and illusion you will have experienced throughout the day.

But the foodís still a ripoff!
