Well, here I am now, safely back home in Australia after a fabulous week in New York with my good friend, Laila Seewang.  I have to say she’s a brilliant architect so keep an eye on the international architecture scene for her!

It was my first time in New York in Summer and the hot and humid weather was an eye-opener.  I didn’t do too many touristy things.  It’s fun sometimes to just ‘be’ in a city and live like the locals, rather than try to explore the hell out of it.  I like the different feel you get.  So I’ve been hanging out in local Brooklyn cafes, I even went to a spa and Laila and I just had to try out a few yummy Manhattan restaurants.  It was a fun week and exactly what I needed.

Oh, and here’s a piccie of the Empire State Building I snapped!
