Where are the nuns?

Right there in front of you. How could you have missed them?

As for Waldo, he's probably there as well. I was never good at finding him though.

I wuz there yesterday - by the Unisphere!

The NY City pavilion is in ruins. Sign says they're expanding the Queens Art Museum. Looks more like ruins to me.

Surprisingly the bizarre NY State Pavilion is still upright.*

Huge sound system blaring out huge thumping noises at very high decibel levels.

Glad to get away.

* "Coming up on your left is the tallest structure at the world's fair, the NY State pavilion, 225 feet high."

See, I still rememer bits and pieces of my Tour A tour, but I mostly improvised anyway.

A lot of things from your past look smaller than you remember them, but the unisphere looks bigger than I remembered it.

The prettiest time at the Fair for me was when I drove my open air Glide-a-Ride by the Unisphere on balmy summer evenings (I worked the 3PM to midnight shift and passed the Unisphere on my A Tour) and the fireworks were going off, and all the illuminated multicoloured fountains, and crowds of nicely dressed happy people...
