Lady Liberty & ballet
This blog post will have a lot of pictures..... Don't say I didn't warn you! Yesterday I went to visit the Statue of Liberty. The trip began with this beautiful walk along the Hudson River with this view of the new tower at World Trade Center. Beautiful!
Vi var 2, der var gode til at stirre!
This time I had a ticket for the crown, but of course I started with the museum and the base. The museum was quickly done (last time I was there, I read EVERYTHING!) but I did get this picture of me and the lady...... (Weeping angel?)
We were good at staring, both of us!
You take a boat there, which is a nice little trip. On the boat and on the island you can really enjoy the view of the New York skyline. Amazing!
Threehundredfiftyseven steps above the ground things looked like this. The view was great! She is standing there, looking away from the city, so this time it wasn't the skyline as a view......
Here is her right arm with the torch. At some point it has been possible to go all the way into the torch, but must have been a very narrow trip!
This is the inside of her head. And the hair-do which is always perfect!
I dag har jeg til gengæld virkelig ondt i benene!
This is what the staircase for the crown looks like. It is actually a double staircase. One going up and one going down. It was very narrow, and there was just one way. Up. The lighting is not very good all the way. But with all this said, it didn't really take long to get there.
Today my legs really hurt!
Opsætningen var helt utrolig og historien meget, meget sjov. Disney kan faktisk gå hjem og skamme sig...... Det var en utroligt stor oplevelse!
Nå ja, og så var der simpelthen så mange mennesker, der så helt utroligt rige ud. Det var de også..... Vildt!
Last night Dorina invited me for a ballet in Lincoln center. The San Francisco Ballet Company performed "Cinderella". It was so fantastic!
The costumes and the choreography was amazing the story was so funny. Actually, the Disney version is nothing compared to this. It was an amazing evening!
Oh well - and then there were so many people looking so extremely rich. Which they were.....
