Quick Stops in New York.
“New York, New York, so good I went there twice”. The first time was in January and it was dammed cold, especially as I had just stepped off a plane from Rio de Janeiro. But what a fascinating city. The second time was in August, It was much warmer. The two trips gave me very different but very similar views of the city.
