As I said in a previous post, work gave me a string of 5 days off in September, so I decided to get out of Dubai (esp. since it was Ramadan) and do some travelling on my own for a change. So after scouring passenger loads, ticket prices, and cheap hotels, I decided on New York. Never been there before, don't have the crew visa, so I can't fly there for work, and I figured if I enjoyed the city enough then I'd make a conscious effort to apply for the visa.

So what did I see???
The Hearst Building, the first of what were many architechtural stunners.
The Lincoln Centre.

Cathedral of St. John the Divine

And somehow I ended up in Harlem...

The Apollo Theatre, where Ray Charles and Cab Calloway started out.

One of the things that every visitor to New York should do is visit the Museum of Modern Art. Some of the most famous works of art are here, by Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gough, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso amongst others...

Still trying to figure out how that big chunk of iron doesn't topple over

Warhol's soup cans

Van Gough's Starry Night

So after some sightseeing I went to Saks 5th Ave for a while, it was a bit of a let down to be honest, I didn't have the $$$ to buy anything there which was a shame.

To top off a big day I had tickets to Monty Python's Spamalot, which was hilarious, however with both the day's efforts plus 8 hours difference between New York and Dubai I was ready to go to bed at the end of it. But not before a few night shots of Times Square...

I love doing the Colombo flight. The passengers are so nice, they're not fussy at all, and eating there is dirt cheap. This was the 3-4th time I had been to Sri Lanka, but the first time I had ventured outside of the hotel. A group of us wanted to visit the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, halfway between Colombo and Kandy, and a moving experience was had by all.

We also visited the sacred city of Kandy to see the Temple of the Tooth, which is very significant in Buddhist history.

Street shopping in Singapore - beats mall shopping in Perth any day of the week...

Friday, October 05, 2007
Hey guys, if you're curious about my lack of posts recently, for a change I have a very good reason. When I came back from my Singapore-Colombo trip last month, despite the fact that it had worked the entire trip, my computer decided to give out when I got back to my apartment. Took it into the repair shop, and it's gonna be a whopping AED 1625 to fix!!! Nice to know that quote straight after my New York holiday, but oh well, aparently computers actually need these things called 'motherboards' to run, so I'me getting it fixed and living off Campbell's soup and 2 min. Noodles until my next paycheck.

On the upside, it should only be another week until I get my lappy back, then the photos of Sri Lanka and New York, and quite possibly the Seychelles will be up again for you guys to see. Stay tuned!
