Times Square in N.Y.C.


I went to the Times Square.

Times Square is in the Midtown Manhattan section of New York City at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue.

There were old theaters along the small back road near the main street of the Times Square.
The small back road area was called "Broadway Theater District."

American Museum of Natural History #2



They have lots of huge animal statue collections in the museum. The blue whale is the biggest among them.

The pearl shells seemed real ones.

The herd of African elephants were traveling family members, I guess.

It was raining when we visited the museum.

Dinosaurs at American Museum of Natural History

Triceratops horridus

Corythosaurus casuarius

Half an hour walk from Metropolitan Museum of Art across the central park in N.Y.C., you can get to the American Museum of Natural History.

They had lots of collections of dinosaurs' bones. The size of their body was far beyond my imagination.

I wish I could see the live dinosaurs.

Barosaurus lentus

I Go to Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in N.Y.C.



I went to the warship museum.
The ship had quite a history.
According to explanations, the ship was launched in 1943, the former aircraft carrier fought in World War II, surviving five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike.
The ship later served in the Cold War and the Vietnam War.
It was decommissioned in 1974, and it is berthed on the Hudson River as a museum.

I Go to Guggenheim Museum in N.Y.C.






 Guggenheim Museum had my favorite Modigliani paintings and Chagall paintings.

It also had several Albert Gleizes paintings in a continuous spiral ramp gallery.

The museum was located just next to the Central Park, Fifth Avenue on the 89th Street, Manhattan, N.Y.C.

I Stay in Hyatt House in Austin, Texas



 The hotel rooms were spacious, comfortable and reasonably priced.

I thought that Austin had ample undeveloped land comparing to the large cities like New York or L.A.

Land price was not so expensive, that's why we were able to book rooms like Hyatt.


I ate Mexican traditional food, taco, and ordered omelet for my breakfast at the hotel every morning.
To tell the truth, I had little appetite due to jet lag.


My business trip for one week became really hard one.

After attending several business meetings, having discussions, I went back to the hotel room then again worked till midnight or even till early morning.

A fortune cookie encouraged me for the next day work.

I Go to Texas State Capitol in Austin


Everyone can visit Texas State Capitol for free. I went there with my colleague who lives in Austin on a hot Sunday.

The Texas State Capitol has offices and chambers of the Texas Legislature and the Office of the Governor inside.

It is said that the Texas State Capitol is 92.24 m tall, making it the sixth tallest state capitol and one of several taller than the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.

The building has more than 100 years history and stands beautiful lawn garden with running wild squirrels.

I Go to ”The Oasis on Lake Travis”



I went to a restaurant that had a beautiful sunset view, live music show and a dancing space with my colleagues in Austin, Texas.

The name of the restaurant was ”The Oasis on Lake Travis.”

The restaurant also served delicious foods and Texas drinks with a friendly manner.
