Listen in, listen Ian!
Hello. I went to New York on holiday, and it was lots of fun.|
They have different birds in America, it's exciting. We saw:
Black and white warbler
Northern cardinal (male)
Northern cardinal (female)
Northern cardinal stuffing his face with flying ants
Birds we saw but wouldn't pose nicely for a photo: brown-headed cowbird, Eastern kingbird.
Rockefeller centre, Central Park, Museum of the City of New York
Chinatown, City Hall, World Trade Centre, Battery Park, Staten Island Ferry terminal
Brighton Beach, Coney Island
Prospect Park, Brooklyn
Confit chicken, egg yolk, carrot, peas
Brioche French toast, caramel ice cream, raisin puree
Ganache, biscuit, marshmallow ice cream, bitter cocoa, blackcurrant
The above was all from wd-50 which is recommended if you find yourself in NY looking for somewhere fancy to eat.
Other nice eating places: Grotto, where you go down some unpromising steps and walk through the restaurant to a lovely hidden courtyard where they feed you nice pasta; Katz's Deli which manages to be fantastic despite obviously being a tourist trap.
We went to the zoo in Prospect Park.

That'll do for now.
