We tried to visit some of the Irish Music Clubs but we could not make it. The band was not available.

We had a dinner in a Thai Restaurant. Yesterday we ate at Turkish Restaurant. In New York you will find food from different countries.

porthole and dived into the water, swimming to the shore in

the hope that his friend would be there to receive him in a

car. “

It’s been a 100 years now. Please accept our salutes to you
