food, fabulous food

New York, United States

So another whirlwind trip has passed, this time in NYC visiting my sister Liz's new place in Manhattan. So lovely. We did a lot of things, mostly planned around food. There are so many restaurants and cuisines scattered around the city, we tried to get a good variety (and by good variety, I mean we had Thai twice because it was so good the first time) including: Thai, Indian, Vegetarian, Belgian fries with dipping sauces (25 flavors!) and some homemade delicacies as well.

We also walked through Central Park (in the snow...and rain...and ice/hail), went to the New Museum, to the MOMA during the free Friday night event, to see a movie and to get a general overview of her neighborhood.

So nice to see my sis again. And experience NYC as an adult...since I haven't been there in years, it's quite a different experience now. And I LOVE IT!
It's such a different city from the city in which I was just living (Quito). The public transit is quick and clean (for the most part) and safe too...that's a big difference. And easy to get around, even walking place to place is just fine. Cabs are pricey (especially compared to cabs in Ecuador) but they're rarely needed, so it works out fine.

After a quick visit, into which we packed as much as possible, it was time to leave deep in the night/morning hours to get to the airport for the next leg of my whirlwind trip.
