Travel: Fung Wah bus on fire

Wonderful visit to New York City with plumtreeblossom

  • Our bus did not catch on fire.
  • We spent a long time lost in the American Museum of Natural History, which is a great place to be lost. Among other things, we saw a neat IMAX movie about aquatic reptiles.
  • We spent some time at a dog run on the AMNH grounds.
  • We saw Bodies: The Exhibition, which is similar to Bodyworlds, but felt both a bit more commercial and a bit more informative (i.e., educational).
  • We had several great meals, notably lunch today at Ben’s Kosher Deli, which I highly recommend, and drinks at a nice little Japanese restaurant across the street from our hotel (when we discovered the bar we were originally aiming for was too crowded and noisy).
Of course the best thing was my delightful traveling companion. And now to bed!
