What a crazy place. Its hard to really describe the range of emotions and experiences that washed over us in the last days. Not having a host was an alienating experience, contrasting the last 30 days of full engagement with every place, person, and all the things we simply "have to see" and more commonly: "have to eat".
In this strange calm (the eye of the storm) we tried to process all the universes and microcosmos that we've passed through. In such a city as New York, its only possible to bite off a little tiny piece and chew on that for a while. So we did.
And now we're leaving again, heading back towards Philadelphia, in order to turn around and come back here in two weeks. The wear of traveling like this is starting to show, though we're still going full steam and loving every glimpse we get into all these worlds one have to see, and eat.
