Starting in Newark and New York City .. the pictorial record of a journey taken in September 2002. Driving North to visit world bead expert Peter Francis Jr. in his Lake Placid home ... from there to Indianapolis to see the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and then meeting many colourful Native Americans at the Friendship Rendezvous in Southern Indiana. Onwards to Louisville KY ( pictured ) before returning to the City of New York, to see the sights and witness .. at first hand .. the sobering scenes of the destruction and the start of the rebuilding of Ground Zero.
