Have enjoyed reading your blog, I visited USA for the first time this year for my son's wedding in Central Park, NY. I actually started looking at ex-pat blogs as he and his new wife have moved to China directly after their stay in NY, as I know his wife is doing a blog also,but via Twitter. I had wondered if any one else was in the area that they were to see what others are writing about the place, but there were not any in the same area as them. Then I looked at India, New Delhi in particular as my husband and I were ex-pats there for a time. Then I looked at USA, and NY in particular and found your blog, which I found interesting and amusing, hope your knees get back to normal soon.
