Some trips

During the last two weekends (and some days around them), we have been away to see The Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Niagara Falls (boats, caves), Thousand Islands, Salem (105 km on bike in 34 Celsius degrees), New England Aquarium, Navy Yard so I apologize for the silence.

Among the six movies in the bus, I would recommend you The Princess Diaries 2 (2004). A princess of Genovia finishes her college but can't become a queen unless she's married. So she eventually agrees to find and marry a perfect-on-paper husband within weeks. Opposing political forces try to prevent the wedding. Needless to say, the guy whose task is to stop the wedding falls in love with Mia and she loves him, too. Eventually she is able, in the middle of the wedding ceremony, to abolish the queen-must-be-married law, becomes a queen, but marries the real lover anyway later.

My #2 choice is What Women Want (2000). Mel Gibson is a creator of commercials for cosmetics products. A serious incident with a hair dryer (electrical shock) allows him to "hear" what women really think but can't say. He becomes a sex god & successful creator of the commercials by reading his blonde colleague's thoughts. She finally forgives him and a happy end follows.
