New York, New York!

A scanned pic of the Brooklyn Bridge taken on our first NYC trip in 2000 (pre-digital camera days!)

Exactly four weeks from now I’ll be exploring cafes and shops in the East Village, strolling through SoHo or might be at MOMA. I’m going to New York!!

In case it’s not obvious enough, I’m pretty excited about our upcoming 10-day stay in what might be my favourite city in the entire world. First though, we’re having a couple of days in Bangkok to refuel on pad kee mao and iberry, stock up on books at Kinokuniya, hopefully get a Thai massage or two and wander the labyrinth that is Siam Square. Then it’s on to Sydney to see family and friends and do lots of fun Sydney things (and eat lots of yum Sydney food, e.g. macarons from Adriano Zumbo’s in Balmain – obsessed – even had them hand-delivered in Saigon when my parents came to stay!). Then New York, then back to Sydney for a bit more time before returning to Saigon (a month away in all). The countdown to this trip has been the most agonising one ever (18 days to go…. 18 days to go….). Before then I need to try and keep myself pre-occupied with Saigon-centric stuff so I don’t drive myself (even more) insane!

    You picked the perfect time of year to visit. The humidity has left and blue skies typically prevail. Enjoy!

    Have a wonderful trip. I’ve been considering a quick trip to NY to see the Fela Broadway production so let me know if you discover any new shops!
