29 May 2008 – Manhattan & Brooklyn
Arrived on a warm balmy afternoon to Tribeca where Kat (daughter of my brother Leslie) lives. The apartment is conveniently located in lower Manhattan. Mei Pin, a friend of Kat from SIN was also visiting. A nap was most inviting after the lack of sleep from the Greyhound dramas. Dined at a French/Jamaica place, Ivo & Lulu’s interesting combination of cuisines.
Wed- walked and crossed the Brooklyn Bridge to visit Dike (daughter of cousin Lock) & Isaac in Brooklyn Heights. What a beautiful day with cousin Yun from Toronto, also visiting Dike. It was sad to not see the World Trade Center but Empire State Building still stands majestically with Manhattan Bridge in foreground. Walked back to East Village to end the evening with a delicious Italian dinner at Il Bagatto.
Thu- another glorious day of walking. The SuperShuttle should soon be here to take me to JKF for my 8+hr flight to Oslo via Iceland. Thank you Kat & Greg for putting up with me and for the wonderful dinners. Looking forward to your weddding in Nov when we meet again in SIN.
