It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. ~Ernest Hemingway
So The Cara-nator and I will be visiting our crazy awesome friends the Dennys in their little town of Delta PA. From there we head to Newark NJ for easy access to NYC. ive never been before and am quite excited. As a kid New York was almost mythically scary to us, every movie and cop show basically implied that to set foot in new york was to invite instant knifing/shooting/raping/and-or haunting (ghostbusters. . .). the funny part is while I was all terrified of ever having to visit the big rotten apple I was living in Miami which was nearly awash in blood from gang and drug running related murders, I guess the palm trees made it seem safer. . . .
I will try to play the tourist and take some pictures, if anyone knows of a super awesome place we HAVE to see while were there let us know, we have 3 days to see stuff and no real firm plans except to attend the Roseland ballroom convention one of those days.
