Friday video: The Statue of Liberty and Guitargirl

This week I’ve chosen a couple of different videos. The first one is two years old, but I couldn’t resist the chance to experience a tour of the Statue of Liberty.

(Although those are pretty awesome.) Yes, there’s always plenty of videos on topics I have zero interest in — but I’ve also come across some really amazing content; so it occurred to me that I may as well share some of my favorite videos here. I hope you enjoy them too.
