New York Part VI
More walking, wandering. Vintage shops in the East Village, lusting after Verameat jewellery, purchasing Saipua soaps (we never made it to the Brooklyn store, more's the pity). Kitchen shops and stationery stores. Bagels, cream cheese stuffed, wrapped in greaseproof paper. Sitting in small parks on wooden benches, a couple of saxophonists playing soulfully nearby, making cocktail bar reservations on my mobile. The Museum of Modern Art on free Friday, far too many people. The most delicious Mexican at La Esquina on Kenmare, blood orange margaritas, tacos, yucca root fries. A queue to get a table, but most definitely worth it, shout out to slowdownapproaching30 for the recommendation. A bar hidden behind a telephone booth in a hot-dog joint, a couple of cocktails that tasted of cough syrup, worse. Nice stuffed bear though. Late night Dunkin' Donuts, just because.
