Manhattan Solstice

Sadly too cloudy/hazy to get the full effect tonight but nevertheless, an interesting phenomenon.  Jordi scooted out of the restaurant at 8.43pm sunset to do a recce but returned to suggest the rest of us stayed put and enjoyed dessert.


All day we’d encountered groups of orange-clad tourists, supporting the Netherlands team in the World Cup final.  But walking back towards the bus stop for our journey home, we spotted the Empire State Building illuminated in red, yellow and red stripes and realised that those Dutch fans had been disappointed.

A fun and slightly quirky means of learning the result, though!

Too tired to talk
