>Long day, very long day.

>Started at 5:00 a.m. when I got up to get ready to go to the zoo for the walk to save the gorillas. It was 5 kilometers which is 3.107 miles. It took me about an hour to walk it. I thought that was pathetic, but Em said it was a healthy pace.

Last night when I took my bath and washed my hair, I braided it in two braids. I left them in while I was walking, then took them out when I changed clothes. So my hair had that wavy, curly look that most people like to see my hair in. Took us a while to find the subway but we did and headed for Tribeca. We were on a local, I counted the stops, when I got to 16 stops I stopped counting. We go off at 79th Street so we could go to Cafe Frida for lunch. We went across the street where they were having a street fair but didn’t see anything we wanted. Em had a headache so she hailed a cab and we went to Tribeca for the film festival, but we couldn’t find anything going on. We did find a Marie Belle on Broome Street, New York, NY and had the most luscious iced chocolate drink(it was spicy) and dessert.

I bought a bracelet for Gwen that is made up of charms with pictures of NYC in them. She liked it.

There was more that we did, but right now I am so tired, and I took a Tylenol® PM, so I really want to go to bed. See you later.

>On April 25, 1945, United States and Soviet forces linked up on the Elbe River, in central Europe, a meeting that dramatized the collapse of Nazi Germany.

On April 25, 1908, Edward R. Murrow, the influential American radio and television broadcaster during the industry’s early years, was born. Following his death on April 27, 1965, his obituary appeared in The Times.
