Tartan Day on Ellis Island

Just a quick note from New York that the "Celebration of Tartan" exhibit on Ellis Island (April 1-3) has come off as a stunning success.

One of the things that kilted men will tell you is that women are constantly asking to have their photo taken with you. Well, who can say no? :-)

In fact, one very famous lady couldn't resist having her photo taken with me while I was there.
I have lots of other photos to share when I get the time in the coming days. There are many other activities going on in NYC for Tartan Week, including Dressed to Kilt and a Parade this weekend.

This week also sees the launch of a new special tartan for Ellis Island (and the millions of immigrants who came through, and their descendants). But that's another blog post....
