Sunday Ian and I "did" New York, at least we trekked all around the lovely island of Manhattan. The Chinatown Bus is amazingly cheap, $20 gets you from Philadelphia to NY and back. We saw a sword swallower, ate some less-than-stellar pizza, rode the subway, gawked and in general, touristed it up. Though I can't honestly imagine myself living in New York, I really liked the city. There is some of everything there. Ian kept a language count, and the informal numbers were 2 English speakers for every 1 Non-english speaker. Quite the world city.
