New York

Because everyone’s your friend in New York City

New York has a really strange feeling of faux familiarity, it's 1001 movies and TV shows come to life. You start to believe that your child could get kidnapped from the fountain in central park, you could meet a secret email lover on top of the empire state building and you could bump into a beautiful mermaid climbing a street sign on Madison Avenue. From the moment we set foot on Manhattan I was confronted by the reality of what has always been a fictional location to me.

We were lucky enough to not only have a great pad to crash in but our hosts the Youngs were even gracious enough to vacate the master bedroom for us. We had a few days of great weather which made wandering the street and exploring central park a pleasure although I was surprised by the humidity.

The city was pretty amazing, the food tasty and the fashion cheap (fortunately the $ was still in the 80’s when we were there) but the best thing about New York was always going to be catching up with friends. It was awesome to be able to spend some time with the Peacocks, the Youngs, the Moffatts and we even managed to grab a few beers (and shot a few bucks) with Caius.

Of the many highlights the most memorable has got to be seeing the naked cowboy. It obviously had a profound impact on GP as he proceeded to sing “I AM… THE NAKED…. COWBOY” in a loud Texan accent for the rest of the week.

Good times.
