By coincidence, I arrived in New York City on the first day Winter Solstice. The goal for these two (2) weeks was just to enjoy some much needed R&R and stay toasty after a busy year at work in Dubai. I spent most of the time in front of the TV catching up on TV series and movies and annoying the family cat, Raven. I did go to the city several times to enjoy the holiday spirit and festivities, see some Broadway shows (Chicago and Jagged Little Pill) and the Radio City Music Hall's The Rockettes, and visited some Christmas festivals. The city does not disappoint -- not this time of the year.
I managed to capture and edit videos so I have something to look back on and look forward to -- another lovely Christmas spending quality time with family. I hope you had a good one, too.
