New York – what a fabulous city! We’ve twice spent a week there, in March 2001 and March 2008, but what a difference 7 years makes. The Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre dominate the photographs of our first visit: pictures of them; pictures taken from them. When they fell on 9/11, I couldn’t help thinking of our visit a few months before and the people we met. The very grumpy lady who sold us the tickets; the photographers who took our picture. Were they on duty that day? What happened to them? I’ll never know.
