I know it's been quiet on the blog this week. I've been in New York with Nan and Shelli soaking up the city. I lived there for a few years and the trip was full of nostalgia. Many things were the same, but there were also some big changes in the city. The taxis are now quiet hybrids and Times Square looks more like Tokyo, but thankfully Radio City Music Hall is still its grand old self. The 24 hour diners are great and the shopping is best on the lower east side if you want indie and boutique offerings. Overall the trip has left me wondering why I stayed away for so long!
