I, my husband, my daughter Alix, and her friend from school and drama, Alex, have just returned from almost a week in NYC where we saw 2 musicals (Wicked and Spamalot) which were wonderful and did lots of other things too. I thought I'd put a few picures up from our trip.
Left to right, top to bottom they are: Alex and Alix on a street off of Broadway, the view from our hotel window, a view of NYC at night from Top of the Rock (Rockafeller Center), Alex "reading the news" during the NBC studios tour, a view of the Statue of Liberty from the Staten Island Ferry, Alix eating her cupcake from the Magnolia Bakery in Greenwich Village (as in Sex and the City), the interior of St. Paul's Chapel, where many rescue and recovery workers after 9/11 were taken in and taken care of for over a year (many worthwhile and touching exhibits here), the four of us in a horse-drawn carriage in Central Park, Alix and friends bargaining for designer stuff from a vender in Battery Park, the spoils: Channel glasses, Rolex watches, Louis Vuiton bags all for suspiciosly low prices...hmm...wonder where they come from...( we met friends from Moncton for a day of double-decker bus touring and cheap shopping), Alix in the modern art wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, part of the stage of Wicked that we saw on a behind the scenes tour, one of the 3 actors who spoke with us on the tour. We later saw him on stage as Dr. Dilamont and also Elphaba's father.
We had a wonderful time and I see many scrapbook pages to make!
