off to NYC
I've spent the week getting ready to go to New York on Friday--true, I was just there in January, but that was only overnight. This is for a whole week, with a 22-hour bus ride on either end. It is a trip sponsored by the local university and open to the public, so there will be a mix of college students, faculty and the larger community. But other than all being on the same bus and at the same hotel, we won't see much of each other...other than being given basic information and travel tips, it isn't an organized tour at all. More like a "here we are in NY, see you at the end of the week" kind of thing. Which suits my purposes fine. I will be visiting the major art museums and a lot of galleries, and I'll go to hear my nephew Dave Crowell
play jazz at the Knitting Factory on the 18th. I'm also meeting my e-penpal Cheryl Lins
in person for the first time, and of course I will eat and walk a lot all week. My most longtime friend ever, Paula Gorski
, will be along on the trip, so the two of us will have fine adventures I'm sure. Stay tuned for the full report sometime after the 25th!
