Hi everyone,

Bennie, Gabrielle, and I concluded our New York vacation with a series of other outings.

We took a hilarious ride to the 86 floor of the New York Empire State Building. Gabrielle wanted to ride to the top, the 102nd floor, but I didn’t care to ride that high. So, we enjoyed the thrilling ride back to the first floor.

Later, we went sightseeing at the United Nations. While taking the tour, Gabrielle asked the tour guide, “How many people are on the Security Council that keeps peace in the world?” The tour guide answered pleasantly, “Fifteen,” with seemingly slight surprise, and continued her response and that made Gabrielle happy and Bennie and me too.

We topped off our New York vacation with a visit to the Sony Wonder Lab, the state of high technology for adults and children. There, visitors can make movies, videos, and the works, and neither of us wanted to leave that highly technological lab.

We said a pleasant good bye, for then, to enjoyable New York City.
