Spring Break in New York

2 Apr

So it’s been a while, and the reason is that I went home for spring break and brought only my iPad, which I still can’t use as well as a computer.  I have a couple of new recipes to post in the coming days, and more to follow soon after, but for now, here’s what I’ve been up to outside of my kitchen.

Catching the train to get to the airport.

First stop: Chelsea.  I had lunch last week with a really good friend who’s going to Japan for a long time, and one of her friends, a guy we went to high school with, came by as well.  Turns out he’s also studying Chinese and we’ll be in China at the same time for  few weeks next January.  So naturally we made plans to hang out over break, and went into Manhattan to see art galleries and go to Chinatown.  And Tribeca, and Central Park…  anyway.

The architecture in Chelsea is so excellent.

Now, Chinatown.  I love Chinatown.  In Chicago and New York, but really Chicago doesn’t compare once you’ve spent any time in New York’s Chinatown.  We spent so much time here.  First, lunch at a dim sum place, then walking around.

I love graffiti.  Also, since David can read Chinese, he tried to decipher all the signs with varying degrees of success.

We stopped in a park, listened to some musicians…

Went to a bakery, and walked up through Tribeca all the way back to Houston.

Having no other ideas for what to do, we got gelato in Central Park.

And found a guerilla haiku.

And then we headed out.

As you can see, this is all from one day, so I’m debating posting the other photos I have since it’s such a pain.  We’ll see!

    Hah! The guerrilla haiku is fantastic. That’s really made my day.
