NJ & NYC

Sunday, February 8th, 2004 · 3 Comments

I hope my recent rant on email and spam didn’t scare anyone away from emailing me or sharing Ofoto albums with me. Please don’t stop. Sometimes I just get caught up in the heat of the moment.

Yesterday Jen and I took our first trip to New York City since moving to Saratoga. We made it to our first stop in New Jersey to visit Jonty, Dina, and their adorable new baby (congrats!) in just over two hours.

From there, we were near Heather and Saahil’s place in Hoboken in no time (and looking for a place to park). I was amazed how fast the Path train got us across the river into Manhattan, where we met Karen and spent the next few hours wandering around.

After drinks at the Telehone Booth Bar & Grill, we enjoyed some much-needed Indian cuisine at Banjara in the East Village. There’s one Indian place in Saratoga, but Jen and I haven’t yet ventured there. Naan ‘n Curry in our old hood in San Francisco was the last time we enjoyed some curry lovin’.

I really enjoyed seeing our friends yesterday, and knowing how close we are to them and to the city. I also enjoyed coming home and not having to circle all night for a parking spot. It’s such a mental struggle to figure out where one is happiest: City or city in the country.

We have a bunch of other friends whom I would’ve liked to see yesterday, but it was such a quick trip for the day we just didn’t have the time. It’s an easy trip, though, so we’ll be back again soon.
