Parting Glances

It's been a just over a week since my return to France and I'm still posting photos from the trip. But today will be the last for a while; thanks for indulging me. Oh, there are more pictures that you haven't seen. My friend Lorraine and I took a day trip into Vermont, but I'll save those photos for another time.

Taillights.

These pictures were taken on the return drive from Vermont as we were coming into Albany during the evening rush hour. It was getting dark on an overcast evening and there was a little mist in the air.

Four-stack interchange at I-90 and I-787.

It was Monday the 9th of November, the day before my flight home. Lorraine was driving and I was snapping away in the passenger seat. I like the blurry quality that I got in these pictures.

A last look at the state capitol and city hall.

It was a great trip. I enjoyed seeing my friends and family and meeting new friends. I had a successful shopping adventure, I saw the Yankees win the World Series, and I ate some typically American foods (Buffalo chicken wings, hamburgers, big thick steaks) that I haven't had in a while. I especially enjoyed spending time with my good friends and hosts Lou and Lorraine. You guys are the best!

Whoosh!

But nothing's better than being back at home again. N'est-ce pas?

  1. Well, IV, it's been a fun time, tagging along with you in Albany. I'm looking forward to hearing about the VT trip, but, until then, I'll look for more on the Hot Wings à la Saint-Aignan :)

    michael, and I didn't have to click my heels together... although that would have been preferable to flying.
