We're in New York!

We just arrived and we're in our apartment. It's really nice... the basement apartment of a typical Brooklyn brownstone. It is decorated in French style, I'd say. The owner, Krista, left us a bottle of local NJ wine, some locally roasted coffee beans (Gorilla) and some homemade banana bread. Wow.

We're waiting for Beth, Graeme and Kate at this point. I don't know where they are. They should be here by now but when you don't know the subway system, getting to Brooklyn would be a major challenge. It would be for me.

When we arrived we spent a long time walking (in the wrong direction) looking for something to eat. We finally found a pizza place that wasn't too seedy and realized then that we'd headed the not-so-nice way when we left the cab. Lesson: always consult the guidebook before setting out on foot.

Wow! Sounds like you found an incredible place. Brooklyn is a little scary in some places, I agree. Can't wait to hear all about your adventures.

Have fun!
