So much to see and do in Times Square I couldn’t focus much on being fantastic for a photograph. It’s paradise for someone with ADD. Leonor and I made sure we forced our way in front of the street cam so that we ended up on a huge billboard because, you know, YOLO. We really wanted to find a karaoke bar to sing boy band songs but sadly they were closed on this night. Also it probably would have been a terrible idea as we were in the heart of Broadway and America where people are born singers, and we are, well, South African and Portuguese die-hard Backstreet Boys fans (ie: should probably stick to being groupies).
Following our time in NY we jetted off to Athens for a few days. She’s obsessed with history and I have a deep love for Greek amphitheatres, the Parthenon and Hellinistic sculpture. I went into full on Tourist Mode with backpack, shorts, sneakers and lots of sunblock. The weather was initially a dream and then post-Parthenon it turned into a ridiculous thunderstorm which we were told would continue for days. Disappointed, we packed up and came back to our sandpit home a day early. So many photo ops, far too few pictures.
I think I’m kind of cursed with Europe this Summer, no matter where I go the rain follows me while everyone else is being blessed with dreamy clear skies in their trips. My next post? Stormy Stockholm!
