New York City, Part IV
July 16, 2014
Somewhere within a three-day stint of rain and thunderstorms, we managed to perfectly time a trip to Liberty Island on an afternoon when there wasn't a raindrop in sight. We couldn't have asked for better weather while on the island - and within the hour of returning to Manhattan, we were poured on while on our way to dinner. A well-spent afternoon to see Lady Liberty herself, in person.
She really is such a beauty. Well done, France. Well done, Frederic August Bartholdi.
We ate dinner at GOBO. Drool.
The next few days were quietly spent in the suburbs with Patricio's family. Two of his aunts and uncles flew in from Ontario and Michigan, and several of his distant relatives from New York and Ecuador came over for a barbecue.
On our last night there, the Fourth of July, we drove to a nearby village to watch fireworks in the harbour.
One more New York post to come! Thanks for reading so far.
