Went to NY for the first time. I met inspiring wonderful people. Went to museums (I saw my first Sargent and broke down to tears, it was so beautiful).
We walked everywhere. I think that's my favorite part. It was so refreshing to see people everywhere. The city was full of life and everywhere you went there were people creating things, moving things and living. Just living.
It's so unlike Los Angeles I immediately fell in love with it. I became spoiled. So many readily available things just a few blocks away. If I get the chance to, I will definitely move to the Big Apple.
PS. I GOT TO GO DO YOU'VE GOT MAIL THINGS. Yuss!

These sketches were from a trip in San Francisco, CA.
The woman on the left is an Italian woman we sat next to at House of Nanking in Chinatown, SF. She was there visiting a friend of hers who was studying in SF.
They had blooming flower teas which made sitting in a very crowded room bearable.
A friend of mine said that the meaner the staff in a Chinese restaurant, the better the food. Not really in this case. From a previous experience, this was just okay. Maybe because I was also so bloated when we sat down.
This one is a sketch from my bf's mom's garden. On Christmas day. After I had some tamales.
I've been watching a lot of Top Gear lately and even though I'm not a car person, it's still one of the best shows out there. This one is inspired by one of their best special episodes where they traveled through Vietnam in motorcycles and in Jeremy's case, a scooter.
I never had any inkling to go to Vietnam until that episode. But now, I can't wait to visit it.
