Steve's sister Jacky and her family looked after the dogs and the farmhouse, while we flew stateside for some retail therapy...
|Just four days in the Big Apple in which to max-out our credit
cards! Whilst most of our time was spent in the deparment stores and designer
outlets of Fifth and Madison Avenues, we somehow managed to fit in a bit of sight-seeing.
This was mostly done on an open-top tourist bus trip during which we paid our
respects at both 'Ground Zero' at the World Trade Centre and at the Stonewall Inn . We
also took a carriage ride through Central Park.
Mind you, we didn't need to go further than our hotel room window to see most of the sights; we were situated on the 37th floor of a block next to the United Nations building and the East River. But then, just as we had got used to the five-hour time difference, it was time to get the limo back to JFK.
