An Englishman in New York

Many of my readers might remember Jeremy from my days as a student in Durham. Well, he's still in the picture and as a matter of fact, he went all the way to America with me to visit my friends and family for Thanksgiving. While he was travelling he kept a diary of what we did and some of his thoughts about my native country. What follows in this and the next blog post is an edited version of his travel diary (edited mainly for length as Jeremy is quite the writer).
