Bradism in New York

Some readers may be put off by my last few entries. Since when was bradism.com a travel diary? I realise most people come to read about my breakfasts and not my international gallivanting.

Today's breakfast was in the form of muesli from Trader Joes, bananas from a bodega on First Avenue and strawberries from some guy selling fruit on the sidewalk in the Upper East Side. It was pretty good.

American Museum of Natural History

I've wanted to visit this place ever since I read Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything.

First, however, was a visit to Levain Bakery and their trip-advisor touted "Best Cookies in New York City." I bought a fresh double-chocolate peanut butter cookie and then took it to Starbucks to eat with my skinny vanilla latte.

The cookie was amazing, and may have contained a whole block of chocolate within. Was it as amazing as the American Museum of Natural History? No. There were actual parts of dinosaurs there and I got to see them and holy shit there were a lot of them. There was also a planetarium and a thousand other fascinating things.

Me pondering some dinos.

I also had my first taste of American Macaroni and Cheese in the museum's cafeteria. That, fortunately, was nothing special and I was grateful that I didn't need to add another thing to my list of high calories treats I must devour as much as possible.

Then we caught the Subway back to our apartment on the Upper East Side.

Palm Beach

Sydney winter is so tough.

On Saturday, Vanessa and I finally crossed off Palm Beach from the list of Sydney places to visit.

We climbed up the hill.

I found some driftwood on the shore that I decided to take an arty, high contrast black & white photo of.

This week, after Sydney got a little cold overnight we decided to go here:

It was beautiful and sunny in Adelaide. We traveled over because we hadn't been in SA for about a month, and I needed to find this:

Actually, that's not true, and my plan to drink a Farmers Union Feel Good Ice Coffee was foiled when I didn't buy one.

We actually came for Vanessa to officially graduate from here:

Vanessa had to dress in entertaining robes and a floppy hat and receive her PHD certificate from academics in even more decadent robes and funny hats.
