Det som händer i New York stannar i New York.
This morning we tried to sleep in, to get rid of the jet lag, and it seems like it worked. At 8 am we got dressed and walked towards the Park.
At Union Square Park we bought some coffee and watched people walking their cute/scary dogs.
And people feeding the cute/scary squirrels.
As we walked on we passed a perfumes store that sold this - The Original Scarface Eau de Toilette. We loved it!
We walked passed the Park and sat down to have some breakfast at a little diner on 77th St.
I had the Belgian waffles with bacon and maple syrup. Very yum!
Afterwards we were high on sugar and decided to walk the excess energy off in the Park.
Then we walked back down Avenue of the Americas and passed the new Magnolia Bakery. We went inside and bought some Red Velvet Chocolate Crumb cake and Vanilla Bean cheesecake. I wanted to cry because everything was so pretty and delicious-looking at the same time.
At Strand's Bookstore I browsed the photography section and got stuck reading a really wonderful edition of Wizard of Oz. But then we had to hurry to meet up with a friend...
...at Gitane's where the girls wear these pretty green dresses and the boys all wear blue worker's shirts. We had some beer and met up with:
Together we walked over to a little place around the corner and had some coffee.
And then I took Kristofer to Lombardi's, the best pizza place I've ever been to. Kristofer soon agreed with me that it was the most delicious pizza he'd ever had.
When we got back outside the rain was pouring down.
Luckily we had just bought an umbrella before we ate, and Kristofer posed with it (channeling Totoro) infront of our village psychic.
When finally got home we were soaked through, even though we had only been walking a couple of blocks. Now we're getting ready to go to a club, but I'll tell you that story tomorrow.
I hope you're all happy, where ever you are.
