"I'm A Toy Tourist!" Award

Hello Fellow Toy Tourists!!!

Who's a Toy Tourist??  Any toy who travels around, takes photos and shares their adventures!

I've decided to give out a special "I'm a Toy Tourist" award to the five of my Toy Tourist followers who have commented most recently! The special thing about the award is that it can be given by whoever receives it -- so winners, please pass it on to (at least) 5 of your friends to help develop the Toy Tourism community!

The award goes to:

Hammie Hamster!
Raquel!
Marlowe!
Buttons the Bear!
and
Jerry and Ben!

Here's a badge for you!

I do New York

Whew, I've been settling back into life in Moscow.  Now I finally have time to share some more about my trip to New York!

Firstly, I'd like to say that New York is truly impressive!  From far away, it seems almost like all of the talk about it must be a legend, but it really IS a great city.  People from all over the world live there, and there are always things going on! Here are some of the cool things I saw.  I really liked the contrast between the tall buildings and the smaller neighborhoods :-)

Looking across the water toward the Statue of Liberty
The new World Trade Center - Building 1
The Empire State Building, seen from the Highline walkway
The Trump Tower, wheeee!!!
Central Park
I loved the lily pads!
