One of these men is an icon who is loved the world over………The other is John Lennon.
Ok, I’m sorry…I will never compare myself to Lennon again (Only in my dreams). I did have this photo of me taken with that Lennon photo in mind. I wanted it to be an exact copy, only I forgot he did the peace sign thing. Bummer. That damn guy and his peace-peddling ways ruined my chance to look anywhere near as cool as he did. So inconsiderate of him!
With two of my sisters in town, it has been ten days of running around the city and doing as much as possible. Lots of sightseeing, museums, restaurants and of course bars.
Visiting Ellis island and the Statue of Liberty was one of our targets. What is usually the first thing people do when visiting New York, took me about a month and a half to get to. I usually try to avoid the heavily tourist populated hotspots but I’m glad I did this one. The statue was cool, yes….but it’s just a statue. They actually have a great Immigration museum….I know, it sounds kinda boring but it turned out to be incredibly fascinating to see the stories of these people finding a new home in America. One of the best museums I’ve seen.
Not much more to say. This post was simply an excuse to post the above photos and put myself next to John Lennon. I really need to get a life.
