New York...

 Every block of the city is a quintessential definition of the highly diversified New York food culture. Each area is divided as a small village of its own unique flavors and history. The variety of cuisine that the city provides is almost infinite. Starting from Tribeca, Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, Lower East Side, Meat Packing district, Greenwich Village, Chelsea, Gramecy Park, Theater, Lincoln Center, Upper East Side, Harlem, The Bronx, Brooklyn to Queens; New York City will never fail to surprise us with its treasure of cuisines. The answer is in the pride New Yorkers take in saying "ONLY IN NEW YORK" ....

New York, one of my favorite cities of all time.  Just thinking of it brings back fond memories of the time I lived there.  This does not mean I want to live there again, but going for a visit is always exciting and something that I have been looking forward to for a while.

The city itself is like nothing I have experienced.  The excitement of being there is contagious and and experience all by itself.  New York is not something you can explain it's something you must feel, live and experience all by yourself.  

Many may not like it because it's busy, busy, busy.  I like it because it's busy.  It never stops and that to me is contagious. Like I said before, I would not live there again, but I sure as hell would visit as often as I can.

This trip is one I have been looking forward to for a very long time.  A year at least.  You see I am going there for a wedding.  Not so long ago, I had decided not to go, but then being me I changed my mind and decided I did want to go after all.  It's been a while since I have seen my cousins and aunts, and I am excited about seeing everyone.  Also will see my parents and one of my sisters.  Yes, a great time awaits me.

This time I will be on y own.  Don't mind this one bit. Arvid and I were both supposed to go, but since something came up he could not make it.  I love us going together everywhere, but I think that for this occasion it is much better I am going on my own.  You see my family is HUGE!  The gatherings go on until the wee hours and the catching up I want to do is best done on my own.
Yes, this is going to be a fun weekend.  In a short weekend I have three events to go to.  The Indian Wedding, which is an awesome sight.  The most beautiful colors of clothing will be on display.  Then there is the church wedding and then a reception.  Yes, a big weekend and I definitely think it is best I did it alone.

Let's just say, I'm in a New York state of mind and I am going to have a fun time:)

And because no matter who you are, if you believe in yourself and your dream, New York will always be the place for you.
