New York Was Excellent And Full Of Saxophones

His Wax Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
Our family visited relatives in New York City over break and had a really excellent time. The kids were spoiled by their grandmother, and I enjoyed family and some amazing cultural experiences at museums, theaters, and Ellis Island.

But now that I'm back and going through my pictures, nothing says New York like wax figures of famous people. My son and I visited Madame Tussauds and had a good time taking selfies in front of all sorts of figures.

It was hard to imagine anything more commercialized, with upselling at every corner and five exits through gift shops, but still it was fun to walk around the figures and marvel at the verisimilitude.

Me: End the Occupation; Golda: Occupation schmockupation.

History still can't figure this guy out.

This one was the scariest of all.

This was the most realistic (?!) Hulk figure I've ever seen.
