I am still at home. No one wants to host me. Please help me. The places I visit aren't so important. I want to travel only.

Palos Verdes, California, USA - 20th December 2012

By: arasmi

Hello!
It has been a while since I have posted any pictures...but that is because I have been on so many adventures lately! I just now have the time to put them all up.

My host is originally from California and she took a short trip there before spending the holidays with her Mom in New York. Here she took me to see the houses in Palos Verdes all decorated for Christmas.

We arrived in New York today and I got to see the campus of Columbia University.

Here is the campus walk...the trees look nice at night when they are lit up. They only have the lights up for the holidays.

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121224_150948-1.jpg
you may recognize the sign from the show "Seinfeld" as it served as the outside for the fake "Monk's Diner" on the show.

We then went to St. John the Divine, a cathedral nearby.
http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121224_154554-1.jpg

We made it just in time for Christmas Eve Mass. The church was beautiful inside.

9/11 memorial, New York, NY, USA - 27th December 2012

By: arasmi

Today we went to visit the 9/11 memorial downtown before we headed to our surprise trip to Washington D.C. (!!).

The memorial are two fountains, or pools, that mark where the Twin Towers stood and around them are the names of the people who died during the attacks.
http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121227_133547.jpg

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121227_133738.jpg

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121227_133726.jpg
Here you can see them still building 1 World Trade Center which is the tallest of the new Trade Center buildings
http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121227_134559.jpg

Here you can see the top of the tower.
http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121227_133807.jpg

Here is the plaza of the memorial
http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121227_134138.jpg

This is the "Survivor Tree"...it survived the attacks (as well as a storm) and was replanted back in the plaza. The wires help it while it is re-rooting itself.

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121227_135507.jpg

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb317/yeahlikecarlos/20121227_143517.jpg

There was traffic and we arrived in Washington D.C. a little later than expected. It was night time already so we didn't go out but you could see the Capitol Building from our hotel.

Times Square, New York, NY, USA - 1st January 2013

Happy New Year!
My host and her mom are getting ready to wait out in the cold for hours to watch the ball drop in Times Square.
First we had a nice dinner...they were too hungry to let me take a picture of their food though.

Exiting the restaurant we get a good side view of the ball...but we move to try and get a good head on spot.
