Being well scheduled, it was bang on time, the first stop was a day visit to New York, with awaited attractions such as Times Square, Statue of Liberty, Manhattan City, China Town, Ground Zero, Financial Centre and Wall Street were explored. Indeed an enthralling experience which led to the next attraction, a day visit to Washington where there was a tour of the White House, Lincoln Memorial and Smithsonian Air and Space museum.
