Central Park and the Plaza Hotel

We arrived, a van full of international students and I, in NYC just after the big NY/DC snowstorm.  We just had to visit Central Park with its blanket of snow.

We were frozen after a few hours in the park!  You can't tell from the photo, but the guy from Brazil in the back didn't have a heavy coat.  The rest of us did, but we were freezing anyway with the low temps and the cold wind.  

So we went to the Plaza Hotel to warm up.

And visit the Eloise area. 

What happy memories from our trip to NYC and DC, 2009!

Experimenting with photographs

Me with International Students in NYC

 One of my favorite places in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The Egyptian temple behind me was donated to the U.S. when its original location was to be flooded at the completion of the Aswan Dam.

 And on a lighter note, a demonstration of the BIG
piano keyboard at the famous FAO Schwarz toy store.



                          Tomorrow, the Plaza Hotel!
