Well we made it safe and sound after sorting out all our tickets at the airport. We were met by a chilling wind that almost knocked us down - it is colder here than it was in Finland for Christmas!!!
Fi and Ryans apartment is very cool and we have a great view over the Hudson River across to New Jersey - the lights look great at night. We have relaxed on our first day but are just about to go out to Ellis Island and down to Ground Zero - will take lots of photos today and make a new albulm shortly.
Our first full day and we visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Both really cool - could have spent heaps more time there but ran out of time and they closed the doors on us at Ellis Island around 5pm. Still freezing cold though - don't know how people go to work in this weather - had to borrow a jacket from Fi who says I have grossly underestimated the cold here - I tend to agree.
