Eating in NYC

Grandpa Bob has been in India for 6 months without American food and India does not eat beef. They worship the cows, that is the reason that they walk around the streets.

So we have been eating hamburgers, ribs, hotdogs, New York Cheesecake. Yesterday we took the Subway to Chinatown and had Hong Kong Dim Sum.

That's where you go to a Chinese restaurant and they bring all of these steamed dished around to your table. It's a lot like a buffet in Oklahoma except they bring the food to you.

The conference starts on 22nd of March, but everybody starts getting here on the 20th. We have a lot of work to get the booth ready for the conference. So Grandma Kathi and Grandpa Bob will be busy.

We have been enjoying walking around NYC.

St. Patrick's Day in NYC. The parade started at 11 am and didn't finish until 4 pm and then it took until 9 pm to clean up the streets and take down all the street blockage barriers. I have never seen so many people. GREEN PEOPLE

This is a wonderful statue of Atlas, by Lee Lawrie, not only is very impressive but it also provides much needed space to appreciate the glories across Fifth Avenue of St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral.

It took use 3 hours to get to Doha, so we went shopping and then had a free Breakfast in the Business lounge. This is me sitting in the lounge in Doha.

There has been NO RAIN, they only have rain during monsoons.
India’s climate is dominated by monsoons and account for 80% of the rainfall in India.

The monsoon season in India brings along a quite heavy rainfall along the west coast between June and September whereas the eastern coast observes rains somewhere between mid-October and December. The monsoon winds in winter mainly blow from northeastern region of Indian subcontinent carrying a little amount of moisture. With the Himalayas acting as a barrier to the cold air from passing onto the subcontinent, the winters in the country go relatively dry.
