What's so special about New York?

Have you ever been to New York? I've been lucky enough to visit New York twice, and I also worked there for six months as a in a café when I was in my twenties. I love New York. It has a special , a sort of energy and intensity that I've never seen in any other .
The first time you you'll see familiar places and things that have on the TV and in American films. Apart from the famous landmarks like the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State building, Brooklyn Bridge etc, there are iconic like the yellow taxis, street signs like 5th Avenue, Broadway and Times Square and of course hot dog stands.
But for me, the most thing is the mixture of . Walk around Manhattan for a while and you'll see Italians, Chinese, Latin Americans, Irish, Koreans; just about every and religion imaginable. I love it!.

Photography has changed a lot over the last few years. I can remember with film cameras. I used to buy rolls of film which had 24 or 36 exposures on them. That means you really had to think a photo. Every snap cost you money.
These days, digital cameras save and moving images on memory cards or on the device's internal hard drive. This means you can take as many shots as you want at no cost.
Another thing that has changed over time is the way we our photos. I still have, in my somewhere, albums full of family photos and holiday snaps, and hundreds more in . 20 years ago we had to physically show photos to people or send them in an by snail mail. These days however, we can put them up on the Internet for anyone to access. And because of smart phones we can share our favourite moments with friends and family on the other of the world with just a click or two.

Some people say that the British are car crazy. They spend more money on their cars than most other European countries, and they change their cars very . The UK buys and sells more sport cars and convertibles per head of than most other countries in the West, and that's surprising considering the rain and bad weather in the UK.
My personal car is quite typical of a middle-aged man who grew up in the UK in the 80's and 90's. A Ford Escort, Mini and Chrysler Cavalier were my first cars. They were all , cheap and not particularly interesting.
I worked with a guy called Terry who had a white Triumph Spitfire and I wanted one, too. I saved my money and eventually bought a sky-blue Mark II Spitfire for pounds. It was nothing but . The roof leaked when it rained, the didn't work and the electrics were constantly causing problems. I loved driving it, though, and I was sad when I had to sell it.
But the love of my life was a 1972 MG Roadster. It was mustard yellow and smelt of and engine oil. The motor sounded like an aeroplane and I sat so to the ground I could almost feel the road under my seat.

One thing I love about living in Spain is that life is very often . Growing up in London meant that the weather stopped you from the open air and forced you inside next to the heater and away from the rain.
I've had many wonderful on restaurant terraces here in Spain and enjoying a drink or two in the sun is a regular occurrence. I do remember having barbecue's in the UK, but the window of good is so short in the English summer that I could probably them on one hand.
One day, our family had planned a barbecue and the sunny morning convinced us it would be a . However, just as we were setting everything up the turned black and it started to rain, a lot! We finished our wet and soggy chicken under the garage door watching the rain.
