New York New York
What can I possibly say about this fantastic city that has not been said ad verbatim before. New York looks, smells, tastes, and feels like it is meant to!
From spending hours confusing locals by walking 100 blocks at a time, to New York pizza, crazy nights with guys from the UN, catching up with Eliana in Soho, ending up at a random rocker's pent house apartment at 5am in the morning for "dominoes", a fabulous David Smith exhibit at the Guggenheim, the Met et al, a bagel in Central Park, pretzel down 5th Avenue, Time Square at night, the Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn and, perhaps most memorably, Toad Hall in general.
I hate to quote Sting but there is definitely something about an Englishman in New York. The place captured me and the people were wonderful. I have to return here, correct that I have live here - at least at some point! Possibilities, possibilities......
P.s. that quote from Theodore Roosevelt is rather wonderful!!
