New York, New York

Day 13 - June 17 2007

We reached NY city early in the morning with no plans whatsoever on what we are going to do in the city. The safest bet was a Hudson River cruise with the view of the NY concrete jungle. Amma was very sleepy during the boat ride, dozing off at the start. She was more alert after the first 15 minutes.

The Statue of Liberty is a sight to behold, particularly as the weather was very cooperative, like the weather the day before.

I was trying hard to get my parents, particularly achan, to smile for the pictures, with limited success. Therefore, I am having a harder time selecting blog-able pictures from the cruise.

We did not have any time to meet the politicians in DC, so we decided to make some time while we were in New York. They were only too happy to meet us. George W did not expect us to give him a petition and therefore looked a bit perplexed in this photograph.

Where there are politicians, there are celebrities. Here is Achan with J-Lo, Ishani with Superman and Amma with Madonna. As you can see the celebs try their best to be aloof.
For the uninitiated, these pictures were taken at Madame Tussaud's wax museum in NY.

Time Square, Rockefeller Center, Empire State.. yeah we were typical tourists...

By late afternoon we had enough of NY for the day. We took an early flight home to Chicago.
