I contact Caitlin I met during the salkantay trek in Peru. She tells me I can stay over for a few nights.

Cool. I love visiting people I met elsewhere.

Oh yeah, by the way, she's pregnant! (Lil'Marley)

 

 

She lives in Williamburg, Brooklyn, the hipster NYC.

Benches, cute cafes, laid back atmospheres

 

 Nothing to do with Manhattan and it's aggressive overwelheming buzz

You want food?

NYC is the crossword of the world.
My best friend Michael is doing research work in Philadelphia. He nicely came to visit me in NYC for the week end. It's been a year and a half since we've last hung out.

Good to see him. He was my first backpacking buddy. We travelled around Spain in summer 2002. It seems like light-years from now.

 

 

 

In NYC that same week end, Adam came to visit. Remember him? I met him in Patagonia, Chile 4 months ago. We trekked together. 4 hilarious days .

Adam has friends in NYC, Mike has friends in NYC. And we've got loads of time on ours hands... Getting together?

Party in K-Town!

 

 

Last time I was in NYC was in summer 2000. Back then I stayed in QueensB. with my family friend Donald. He is now a successful and established architect.

he loved NYC back then and introduced me to summer in QB: B-ball, picnics, concerts in the park and so on... he is still loving it!
