Symbols of America

I just saw my first bald eagle.

On the train in this morning, I looked up at the trees after pulling out of the station and there he was looking all large and majestic, as they always seem to in photographs.

Like this.

According to Wikipedia, bald eagles are winter visitors to my area of New York. Now I'm going to find myself carrying a camera to work, to see if I can get a better shot than this one.

Having now seen my first bald eagle, it occurs to me that I've not yet had any apple pie. Any suggestions for other American experiences?

  1. American experiences you must have:

    Not only apple pie, but apple pie with a slice of cheddar cheese melted on top.

    Disco fries (mozzarella melted on top, with gravy on the side).

    Medieval Times.


    Not being able to buy any type of alcohol on Sundays, if you're in a blue law state. Not being able to buy alcohol at all if you're in a Kentucky dry county.

    Being told you can't get there from here.

    Skip the Empire State Building, it's over-rated.

    I'm out for now. You already experienced chili cheese dogs...Why is it that so many so-called American experiences include melted cheese of varying types?
