A New Year, A New Day

Two days after arriving back to my room in Brooklyn, a good college buddy of mine named Georger decided to come for a visit.

After counting down to 2014 in Rebecca’s living room with a view (fireworks shimmering over The Statue of Liberty anyone?) we slept for a good nine hours before embarking on our New Year’s Day adventure.

Georger’s first time out on the ice. I’ve never had to teach anyone to ice skate before and it was quite the enjoyable challenge having to put the physics of ice skating into words.

Lunch break in Korea Town. We had some lovely barley tea and I discovered (and ate!) a little something called black rice. For dessert I found myself munching on a rice doughnut and hunted down some old favorites in a Korean bookshop.

We ended the night with Georger’s friend Jason at Smalls jazz club. It was the first time for all of us. The drummer introduced himself to me and I slipped comfortably into the rhythm of the music as G + J chatted quietly in Chinese behind me.
