Letters from the Americas 2005 (part 6) - New England
I DON'T WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD, I'M JUST LOOKING FOR A NEW ENGLAND
Get a memo out to the Kennedys, there's a new Irish Mafia in town and we're claiming New England...
The whole trip was like a tour of the flimography of our youth. (Yes, I said that, I'm that pretentious).
|Forget the beack, check out the tunnel|
|Woah, we'll need sat nav|
|Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse|
|Which way is the screen?!|
Our last stop was Litchfield Connecticut, very posh, some great hiking trails and a vineyard of all things! We had breakfast in some side of the road cafe with nothing around for miles and found ourselves in a greasy spoon dedicated to the world of British pop/rock/punk; Oasis and The Clash posters adorned the walls, Blur emanated from the stereo. Loved it. America, it will always surprise you. This was especially surprising as the main players on New England radio stations are Phil Collins, Elton John and A LOT of country. By the end of it though we were knowin' when to hold 'em, knowin' when to fold 'em, workin' 9 to 5 and singing the prison blues. FILM REF: Mystic Pizza

|Shaken not stirred...pips on the side|
