Back in the Big Apple: Day 1-2

My week in New York City has returned once again! The horns, smoke, heat, rushing people, confused people, determined people. It really is a human playground. A city is so unnatural yet we find ourselves draw toward them, and building more spectacular and larger structures from the last. It’s marvelous to think about.

I arrived yesterday after a 4.5 hour long car ride, which ended up not being horrible. I listened to music the whole way, always a relaxing time. We stayed at the apartment for a couple of hours, regrouping and preparing for the wedding party for the newly weds: Jaughna and Nick.

I became the photographer at the party hosted at the Glass House Tavern. Even thought your may or may not know the people, I will introduce you.

I met so many nice people, and had an amazing time with my Aunt’s side of the family. After the party, we stayed at the bar for another hour, or was it two? Then we finally all split apart, because it was late, and the bride and groom had to go back home the next day to Tanzania. Did you know they don’t have quinoa there? I didn’t.

On day 2, today, Uncle Michael and I went to the Bronx to go Italian food shopping. Of course we bought the homemade raviolis, which were not easy to find since Borgatti’s is closed on Mondays. But we found an equally amazing replacement, Terranova. We got meat from Peters Meat Market, fruits, veggies, and bread.


And we can’t forget about my massive buffalo chicken pizza from Full Moon Pizzeria.

More posts to come over the next few days!
