It suddenly dawned on me… "Are you famous?" I asked the tattooed, muscled, mustachioed man next to me. "Yeah… kinda," he says, "I have a small* show on the Discovery Channel – it's called American Chopper." Finally, my first bona fide American celebrity sighting. Not only a sighting either, I sat next to Mr American Chopper (Snr) and talked to him for two hours and he was so down to earth, and very lovely... not what you might expect when you check out his photo here (he's on the right).
This whole subject of celebrity ties in nicely with my favourite photo this week. This is Joe's in the West Village, a coffee hangout for all the cool people in the West Village. It's also supposed to be where famous people go for their coffees, but I haven't seen one yet… though I've come to the conclusion that I'm not very good at recognizing them!

Have a lovely weekend! I'm off to explore Montreal and am looking forward to a couple of relaxed days with lovely husband C. and MO, my fabulous friend from Melbourne.
From New York, with love xox
