Trying to be serious but failing =)
A lot of things can happen in the space of a week. Occasionally, it can be a lot of nothing and that was exactly what was happening this week. Jennifer (ellechic) in New York was off work for the week and desperate not to be bored. Meanwhile, I was.. well, I can't exactly say I was off work for the week but I was finding myself at a loose end. Oh, and for the record I have recently started working again!

I needed some place to be and fast. That weekend I had to attend my granddad's 2nd anniversary wake. Something that is now becoming a tradition because my granddad was loved by all and there was really no better excuse to get the entire 50+ family members eating and drinking in my parents picturesque flower garden.
Now biting my tongue to stop laughing!
Not a problem though as my parents had moved into the 21st Century and I was able to book a flight 24 hours later =)

The first night in New York is also a new tradition which goes something like this. I arrive around 1pm. I get to where I'm staying around 3pm. I get showered and changed and hit a restaurant around 7pm. Party with Jennifer and her friends. Drink Mojitos. End up in some random bar in the Village and arrive back home shortly after sun rise for breakfast, before finally getting some sleep!

I spent the next few days recovering, until finally on Saturday I met up with Ruthie, Jeff and Jennifer in Meat Packing at a Cuban restaurant. I have to say I have no idea if the food was authentic or not. It seemed to be exactly the same as Brazilian. Of course the subject of how many US citizens have actually experienced real Cuban food was brought up since it's quite hard to get there =)

You forgot to add lunch in Hoboken and the attempt at shopping at the Garden State Plaza in Jersey.
