Earlier this month, I was lucky enough to endure the presence of my immediate family for a week here in New York City. On their last day in town, we started out at the Brookyln Smorgasborg in Williamsburg. There they sampled the lobster roll (with which they were not impressed), basil lemonade, bamboo coconut pudding, vegan indian sandwiches, and a vegan burger topped with Vegan Cheese. Aside from the lobster roll which they (---and I) I admit, tasted nothing like seafood, everything else was great. From there we took the G down to Fort Greene, (my neighbourhood) and I gave them a very brief tour of BAM as we headed toward the Barclay Center to catch the 2,3 to the Brooklyn Musuem.
After the sixth or so time of the security telling my siblings to not touch the work (they started to remember. We went through all six floors and I think by that point everyone was mentally exhausted. As short as a history the Bahamas has, it is a rich one; but people that live there are likely to have no idea because it is not showcased outside of the traditional "social studies" classes--I think the experience of time through the ages was a bit overwhelming on a full stomach. Somehow by the time we made it down to the first floor where we started we were all hungry (for another sampling or breadth of snacks. We turned into the Botanical Gardens and although my father decided it would be best for his legs if he headed back to the hotel--the remaining members of the group enjoyed their walk.
My mother was very excited to see plants from her garden in the various greenhouses that housed the four main climate zones. She was almost impressed--but instead she was rather proud. Hopefully you enjoy the photographs, it was a beautiful day for walking.
