Wednesday in NYC and we got up to head up to the Meatpacking District. Just as we exited the subway the sky cracked open and we ran for protection to the sound of billions of raindrops against the city streets.
At an appalling coffee shop we hid from the rain, trying to find a good and close lunch spot through Unlike City Guide.
It told us to go a couple hundred meters down to this place.
Old signs, warm, tons of sandwiches and fairy lights, plus they were playing Lykke Li and AlunaGeorge. Perfect.
So instead of strolling around NYC we just hung out, Daniel and me, talking shit and telling stories for a few hours until the rain stopped.
Back outside we walked around through Chelsea, Meatpacking, West Village and Greenwich Village, photographing and chatting. The last two areas were were my favourites as there were lots of brick buildings and even more trees.
Eventually we ended up in Soho and at some Mexican bar we ordered some happy hour beers and one little oyster as I’m convinced I should like them. And every time, I’m proven wrong.
After all, I’m in love with rainy holiday days too as you don’t have to rush anything, just get a bit drunk and eat good stuff.
Around six Nicolas met up for us and we headed back to Brooklyn. On the was we picked up some pizza and then packed up all of our stuff again, as it was time to take the overnight bus up to their hometown Toronto, in Canada! I was dead nervous and above all excited.
