      I too like museums – and even if maybe those dedicated to the city aren’t the most spectacular, I think they worth a visit in order to better understand the past of a place.

      PS: at least you are close to NYC than I:D

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?
