New York City
My point of arrival in the US, where we stayed for one week.
I shot photos mainly by day, but I have to say best part was by night!
Awesome week. Also: thanks Duke for the show!

Boston felt a lot like England. After an evening in Harvard, we spent a full day in the city center,
walking the liberty trail as perfect tourists would...

Going to America, we couldn't miss the capital: Washington. White House, Washington Monument, etc. Thanks to Kate for having us at home during two days! Notable quote: "If you're behind the Capitole, Justice can't see you". It stuck with me.

Jazzy New Orleans
New Orleans, Louisiana. Once upon a time, France sold it to the US...what a shame!
The city is difficult to grasp because it's a huge mix between a lot of different influences.
There are good and bad parts. Up to you to remember only the good ones!

We had the opportunity to go paddling and walking in the Everglades, the big swamps full of gators in the middle of Florida,
during four hours, guided by (thank god!) a guide and the full moonlight. Unbelievable memories.

Coral Castle is truly one of the craziest thing I've seen. Built by one love-disappointed man named Edward Leedskalnin,
this "castle" is full of crazy, unpolished ideas. And coral of course!

Key West is the southernmost island of the US. Pictures include beach and views from the town,
but we could also see some wild birds and Hemingway's house.

Car rental: 20min on the Internet, by Hertz.
Driving there: 4 hours of driving, with beautiful landscape on the way.
We hiked during two days in Yosemite Valley. Needless to say: stunning views and incredible memories! (including the night spent in the car with 32°F).

San Francisco, the End ©
San Francisco was the final stop of the trip.
Pacific Ocean, SF Bay, hills and overall atmosphere were stunning. The weather wasn't bad either.
