This week found me back in my beloved Brooklyn. For the first half of the week, I did something I haven’t done in a long time — I played tour guide and hit all the major sights in order to give Anders a crash course in New York City. On one particular day we walked all the way from Union Square into Central Park, covering more than sixty blocks and a couple avenues on foot! I never bring my camera out in the city anymore and so it was refreshing to haul out the dSLR and try to capture old landmarks in a new way.

After I reluctantly relinquished Anders back to the fine country of Denmark I returned to my usual New York City routine — spend all day working from my hosts’ couches, emerging occasionally to pick up takeout or meet up with friends. The countdown to Peru is looming big time, and I’m firing on all engines trying to get everything together for my departure.

  • I have to go with A, because my Grad School was right next to the Flatiron building and so it brings back really good memories looking at that pic!
