Apparently so, there was a third cabinet of rodents too….

I mean, really…and they didn’t think people would take pictures?????

This perplexed me also.

The Planetarium

Times Square

Another day, another museum. This one I enjoyed far more than The Met. Though I was pturbed by the animals. Obviously, for the most part, they are real, stuffed and mounted animals. Someof them I couldn’t bear to photograph as their faces seemed so sad.

But, it was so cool. The Planetarium is this huge round orb, you go in and a film is projected over the entire roof of it. So it looks like you’re in space. It was amazing!

More shopping today, though not excessive. Pat & Allan, got one pair of pants for James, just have to grab jeans. Got myself matching pants for one of the suits I bought.

Currently in Dunkin’ Donuts dying for a wee (no toilets), and wondering what to have for dinner….

Miss you all heaps!

    I’m very much enjoying the walking, hat-wearing and eating tales. I recognise the guilty pleasure of sitting in a Starbucks – you know you shouldn’t and the coffee is shit, but the chairs are comfy and the air-con is warm…It will do until you find somewhere better!
