Souvenirs of New York

blog mag covers

Mr Andrew and I went on a mini vacation to New York last week. Visiting during the election was an interesting experience to say the least. As a Canadian, I had no horse in the race, except for the possible effects on the global economy and the environment.

The immediate impact was that our dollar is so low compared to the US dollar that we could not indulge in much shopping. Because Trump dominated the media coverage, New York magazine commissioned a Barbara Kruger cover which I decided was suitable for framing (and while I was at the Value Village looking for a frame, I found this Saul Steinberg New Yorker cover).
