Hey how's it going?

First post in America. We've been here for about 2 1/2 weeks and I've been so busy eating pizza and watching TV ads that I literally haven't had the time to update this. The main reason is that I keep thinking that no one reads this blog. But a couple of comments about how lame it is have made me realise that people actually stare at it for weeks waiting for something to happen.

In the last 2 weeks, we haven't done anything cultural. All we've done is walk around trying to buy as much stuff as possible. We've also been to Little Italy for the feast of San Gennaro to look at big men eat sausage and peppers and an evil clown say to a 4-year old Chinese boy something like 'Ching ching chong'.

We attended Pickle Day and waited in line for big gherkins on a stick and gave up.

We ate a lot of Lombardi's pizzas.

We went for an express visit to the monkey house of the Bronx Zoo.

We went to see the new Coen movie.

We went to a wedding in Vermont and bought a tent for our trip to Vegas.
