    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at the  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

Spring Arrives in Central Park Conservancy Gardens

Taking advantage of a visit to the Museum of the City of NY, we popped across Fifth Avenue to see how the Conservancy Gardens are coping with the strange weather pattern (The temperature has ranged from 30 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the last few weeks). No fear, they are coping beautifully. The fountains are not yet working but the Spring flowers are not waiting for them!:
