We Made it to New York

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

It rained the whole way so we took about 11.5 hours to get to NYC. It was pleasant being in the car together, though… we had a nice time.

Wednesday night late we found a huge Whole Foods Market (two stories, almost a city block wide) and ate at the deli. Good food and a non-tourist environment, not fancy but just right. I felt so spoiled to have so many food choices past 10pm.

Thursday morning we met up with a bunch of other folks here for the Ukefest, they were from the UK, Sweden and France… had breakfast at a deli close to the hotel and then spent the pleasant sunny morning playing music and chatting. It was lovely.

At another point Brian ran into a few performers from Australia but I wasn’t there at that point. So far, we’re the only folks from the USA who we’ve seen in the uke circles. That will change tonight when we get to the first of the many concerts this weekend.

Right now I’m in a cafe drinking tea after eating a great salad made just for me. Brian had a pannini (sp) sandwich and fresh squeezed juice. He’s playing uke quietly here and I’m saying hi to you all. I took a lot of photos but will download and develop when I’m not on battery power in a public space.

I’m still hoping to find at least one yarn shop and one museum. We’ll see how that goes.
