29th November 2006: New York

Okay so after the delayed arrival last night which in turn led to an early night it was up at 8am and off for a days wandering for us (and no that is not a typo, 8am!) Lots of Superman: The Movie sites to visit and it's Sarah's show today - woo and indeed hoo! :)

Radio City Music Hall Statue at Rockefeller Center Empire State building at night Rockefeller tree  Crowds gather for the Rockefeller tree lighting concert, which Sarah was at but it was on at the  same time as the show I had tickets for, so since  I didn't have a car to whisk me between I  couldn't hang about (though I could have asked for a lift! ;p)
