Saw this on Greenwich Ave. They are remembrance tiles for the victims of September 11th. Each hand painted tile stands for a person lost in the disaster. They have pictures and messages designed by relatives and friends. The wall goes around the entire block and authorities have lost count as to how many tiles are there.

This is the most amazing place isnt it – I was visited about 3 years ago at which stage there were loads of letters/cards etc. but nothing like this. Very moving.

Am incredibly envious of your trip and thrilled to be getting blog (good old mum). You missed an amazing party for Rosie but NYC sounds fab too!

Best love V Donca xxxxx
