All good things...

After nearly three weeks here in the US, Mum and I are heading home to New Zealand later today. It's been a brilliant trip, taking in New York, Boston, Cape Cod and Washington DC. What a gorgeous time of year to travel, and what a gorgeous part of the country. Trees everywhere! Especially on the Cape - they are obviously really valued.

We've found the Americans extremely friendly and courteous, and easy to relate to. The people in this part of the country in general don't fit with all the negative stereotypes of Americans - they're great :)

Time to pack the laptop away and fit in one last Smithsonian museum before we fly out - see you on the other side...
