  • A street in Manhattan that Prolagus will walk down today, his last day in New York City. 13.4 miles of fun! (I hope)

    April 9, 2009

  • Aww. And I was just there yesterday (but only for a few hours)!

    Where are you headed now, Pro?

  • I'll be in Italy for four months, then, in August, I'll come back to NYC to begin my Ph.D.

    My actual plans are to travel as much as I can across Italy and Europe...

    April 9, 2009

  • Ah, so you'll be back to NYC in the fall, then.

    I envy you your travel plans! Looking forward to seeing your photos on Flickr. :-)

  • Pro: you do know that Broadway continues on up through Westchester County, possibly all the way up to Duchess county? If you get up that far, beware of little men. And, for God's sake don't lie down and go to sleep. A twenty-year absence from Wordie would be unthinkable.

  • Oh, I know, chained_bear sionnach! But I limited my walk to Manhattan.

    A beautiful day, a beautiful walk, a surprising number of friends that decided to join.

    I can't imagine a better end to my first New York life.

  • Oops... I beg your pardon (too many windows open at the same time, apparently it's been a busy day on Wordie)

    Shouldn't you be sleeping, by the way?

    April 10, 2009

  • Lucky I had a ticket.

    April 10, 2009

  • Ha! Excellent!

    Gee, Pro, you sure charge a lot for a walkity walk.
