On a day with no school, it is time to explore the city. That is exactly what my friend and I did Monday, when we hit the train stations and the streets of Queens to see the ecclectic and ethnic neighborhoods of Jackson Heights and Flushing. Here is a bit of our journey through pictures.

We ended the day with CoCo (a place that does smoothies and tea).
Word to the wise: Carry cash with you; Most places only accept cash.
Go into all of the malls and supermarkets, it is amazing.
I learned a lot that day. I learned a lot about features and feeling different almost like an outsider. Usually, I can blend and go unnoticed with many cultures and ethnicities, but in Chinatown, that was not the case. It puts things into perspective. It was pretty awesome. We had a fab day, and I thank all of the lovely people in Queens who made our day possible and God, who made our day safe (and we didn’t wait on one train, smooth rides) 🙂
