Regular readers may have noticed a pause in this blog in June. Where was I? In the USA.
Here are a couple of photos from New York City. The first one shows Grand Central Terminal, where I arrived by train from White Plains NY.
I photographed everything New York-ish from fire hydrants to pretzels, but the most photogenic building was the Chrysler Building.
It turns out that expat life has long-lasting benefits. This trip to America was based around friendships made in China and India. Buy lunch for a friend in Bangalore and they return the favour in Boston. Make friends with people in Dalian, and they invite you to a wedding in New York. Accumulate enough frequent-flyer points on long hauls across Asia in 2007, and you can cover the cost of transatlantic flights in 2015.
So, in honour of my friends who keep up our connections across the world, here’s an extra photograph, of an unlikely newspaper vending machine in Washington DC.
