Recently, I took a two week trip to visit NY – surprisingly, I hadn't spent much time there, despite it being so close to me. The small amount of time I had spent there left me with a bad taste. Too cramped, too grey, too busy. Not my city.
But when Caroline needed someone last minute to house & dog-sit for two weeks, I happened to be itching for adventure, and thought it might be fun. I had a blast, honestly – I went to a bunch of museums, ate fantastic food, lived in her apartment. I met up with a few old friends, met a few amazing new people, and sincerely, the whole thing was amazing. It left me this time with real attachment to the place.
I love the train. The Lakeshore Limited is what I used to take to Maine. One of my first days there, I wanted to explore, so I walked over to see Central Park & The Met. I got a day to explore with my dear old friend A. Pic, and see a few other museums, before finally taking the train back home.
