New York - concrete jungle where dreams are made of

We've been here for ten days, but tomorrow we hop on a plane to head to another city. And just in time - snow
is forecast for NY tomorrow.

I'm really sad to leave. We'll miss Simone, our favourite server at our local cafe on Malcolm X Boulevarde, who is always intrigued by which pie we're going to order (answer: usually cherry). Tonight she kissed us when we said good bye. But I reckon we'll pop in for some key lime pie before we leave tomorrow and say goodbye again.

I'll miss the 2 and 3 subway and the filthy platform under 116th St. I'll miss the quiet street of Brownstones we've been living in. We'll miss the random diners where you can get a hot cup of coffee and waffles with bacon and strawberries. Scott will miss the pizza-by-the-slice joints, especially the one next door to Magnolia Bakery on Columbus.

I'll miss Magnolia Bakery.

But a new city, new adventures, and a friend to catch up with are next, and that's a lot to look forward to.


  1. You realise I'm living my American adventure entirely through you, right? Although that lady lounging around on the ice in the last image, could easily be me.

  2. I agree with Tania, think we're all living your holiday with you! You take some beautiful pictures and now we all know where to go if we ever get there! Thanks!

  3. Awww those photos make me want to jump on a plane sooooo badly. Just maybe not Qantas.


Thanks for stopping by! I love reading your comments, but if you're anonymous please tell me who you are.
