June 9, 2009

June 9th: An action-packed day. First, a trip to meet Dad's former colleagues in the Litigation Bureau of the New York State Office of the Attorney General. Second, a quick stop at the New York Stock Exchange and the nearby 7000 lb. Wall Street Bull sculpture at the bottom of Broadway. Then a dash to Liberty Island to see the Statue of Liberty. Back to the Millenium Plaza for lunch and a quick nap, over to the United Nations plaza (where there were 76 police cars parked in front -- they're there every afternoon, according to the cop with whom we spoke), then to midtown to meet Rahul Uncle, and then to Rahul Uncle's house for dinner, where Rahil met Fayeza, played with Cleo the Beagle, and had dinner.
