New York: Central Park

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Yesterday was an incredible day. The weather was perfect, and so after church we went out to explore Central Park. They joined me in my quest for the Bow Bridge. 🙂 It was a day full of some of my favorite things: Park, trees, nature, bridge, couples, friends, the Bible, a castle and an Indian wedding.

I needed to find that bridge. Hilariously, no one knew what bridge I was talking about, but when I asked at the welcome center, they knew what bridge. 🙂 We found it!

We saw an Indian wedding photo shoot by the Bethesda Fountain 🙂 I was thrilled… Indian Shaadi!

Today, I did laundry (met a nice met who gave me advice about staying warm and places to visit in NYC). I looked like an idiot at the Laundry mat because I have never used those types of machines. I painted my nails, and I am ready to go to Little Italy. I am feeling the need for something Italian today. I am also getting ready while watching some “I Hate Luv Storys.”  I love Sonam’s hair. The weather is perfect– I feel the need to go exploring again. This time, no train. San Gennaro festival is going on right now.

The France 24 channel keeps talking about the Libya incident and anti-American protests. Sigh. What sadness. Anyway, I am heading out. I have plenty of school work to do when I get back, but for now I am exploring. Pray I find a watch for under $100. Apparently, that is hard to find here.

I miss my cricketers.

Fact of the day: Yesterday, I burned my hand while cooking. I accidentally left the metal handle of the pot over the fire and grabbed it. Anyway, my hand is fine because I put potatoe slices on my hand. My mom told me to do this– it worked. So it you ever have a burn, put potato on it. It takes redness, heat and bubbliness away. I swear by it.
