Times Square!

Back in the USA!  Chris and I were very excited to be back in our homeland, albeit exploring a new location (for me--Chris has been to the Big Apple before).  My first trip to NYC was filled with the stereotypical tourist events: visiting Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Natural History Museum, Central Park, eating New York pizza, plus hanging out with our great CS host.

It was so cold that the ponds in Central Park were freezing!  These ducks were upset that their swimming space was being infringed upon, so they were breaking the ice by walking back and forth along its edge.  Of course, they were still surprised each time the ice broke and toppled them back into the water...

It amazed me how endless the tall buildings were in New York--they just extended forever!

I love squirrels much more than the pervasive baboons in Southern Africa
