I don't blame you for doing so. They are lovely pictures of beautiful places. Just one thing I'm curious about...what is the story of this restaurant that is never open.

I'd like to visit NY one day, I've never been to America so I can't really compare it to Oz. My friend tells me you don't have shopping centres like we do, we have shopping complexes with small shops, supermarkets (grocery stores) and department stores as well.

Pictures like that sort of make me wish I lived in a "real" city. I live in metro New Orleans, but it doesn't look like a city at all.

Thanks for visiting Lam(b) today. Great Blog. We have a lot in common, I'm also 33 and not a good shaver. I shaved this morning though. I kind of like the Bath and Body Works Raspberry Vanilla hand cream on my legs after I shave, maybe that will help. :)

I know I have to stop with the revising insanity. The good news is there is a July 30 post mark deadline so I'm hoping that will help.
