It's been some time since my last upload as we're travelling at the moment. Right now we're in New York City doing the tourist thing and loving the vibrancy of this incredible city.

Today we visited McSorley's Old Ale House and met Pepe. He's been working here since he was 18 years old, grew up in a little red house you can see from the front window of the pub, goes to church across the road and wouldn't have it any other way. The pub itself has been operating since 1854 which in itself is incredible and they manage to serve the best beers we've had since we started here in NYC.

Pepe was a real New York character and was kind enough to allow me to take his portrait before we left. This shot really personifies him, a genuine, no-nonsense guy with a billion stories to tell.

If you're in New York, go to McSorley's have a couple of beers with Pepe, he's pure gold.
