Only in America…

Only in America…

would they want to charge overseas tourists $10 to register for the privilege of visiting America. So they can fund a travel tourism promotion group aimed at … getting overseas tourists to come to America. And explain to tourists why they have to be fingerprinted and give away lots of their personal details.

Nothing like being scanned for fingerprints and asked if I was involved in a Canadian drink-driving incident in 1994 to make one feel welcome when entering the land of liberty and freedom. Looks like I’ll have to pay an extra $10 for the privilege soon…

What's in New York?

Liberate your money!

My siblings and I are basically looking at taking my parents to New York for a major celebration.

This is a great idea with the only flaw being that parents being parents, we’re not really sure of their hobbies and walking miles upon miles of city streets isn’t quite an option either. The main reason for taking them to New York is that they’ve never been to the United States before, and it’s a world-class city with major tourist attractions.

That said, the list of places we’re thinking we could take them mostly consist of:

Empire State Building
Statue of Liberty / Ellis Island
Central Park
Times Square

Can you think of touristy places in New York (or the surrounding area) that don’t require much brain or feet power?

btw, I’m flying through New York, Cleveland, Las Vegas and Phoenix in April if you’re interested in following my trip!
