This is also why I love New York… Even if you go out just for a walk, you never know what you gonna see. Yesterday night, I was in the area of the Museum of Natural History when suddenly….( ahahah suspens !) I saw a big plane in the middle of the road… In New York ! Believe me people, even if NYC have seen its Brooklyn Bridge destroyed by Godzilla, this is quite unusual !
A dream that comes true !!
All around the plane, I could see four or five dozen of people agitating their little grey cells around Ben Stiller. They were in the middle of a shooting for his new movie : The night in Museum 2.
Acutally I hadn’t even seen the first one so whatever. But that was funny to see…
Even though I have seen a few explosions in my life, I will never get used to it especially when It’s happening in the middle of a big city as New York !
Yesterday, a car literally explosed in the middle of the 6th avenue and 54th st.
An opaque cloud of smoke invaded the avenue as well as a bad smell of burned tire.
Then, the firemen arrived and took care of the situation in no time. I don’t know if the driver was still inside the car or not… That thought kept sticked on my mind all day… It’s ”funny” how memories from the past can simply jump on you through unexpected events or just from everyday life scenes…
Anyway, that was the first time I saw firemen in real action instead of seeing them burning trafic lights with these brain-mashing sirens.
Today was my last day in Kaplan Aspect and so, tonight is my last night in Brooklyn Heights… I’m actually sad to live this place that was really nice to live at. This pics shows the Montague st and to be more accurate, ”La Traviata Cafe”, which makes the best pasta ever !
This is how the end of august is goint to be for me:
From now till August 24th : I’m with my mom and sis (#4) in Manhattan.
From August 25th to 31st : I’ll seal my red wine thirst (Hmmm, I can already feel the first drop of that elixir on my taste buds !) and satisfy my craving for a delectable-unpasteurized-stincky-sticky french cheese in France… (where else ? )
September 1st : I go back to NY and move in my new residence
September 2nd : First day in MCNY ( I already get the shake !)
Today is probably one of the most beautiful day of my life ! Indeed, I’ve been accepted in MCNY for the next semester which starts on september 2nd !
I can’t believe that I’m going to be student in New York City. I will have the opportunity to live an American Halloween, Thanksgiving, Ice skating in Central Park under the snow……… and more !
However, to be honnest, I’m also terrified ! There is a huge difference between the French university system and the American one… I will probably bite the dust for few weeks before I get used to it !
Living my entourage for 6 months was more or less easy, I already did it. But now, this is for 3 years minimum… I’m not playing in the same court ! How is it going to be, when I’ll be homesick without the ones I love around me ? YOu can be as strong as anybody but it’s never easy.
Fortunately, I’ve got some friends here who I can count on ! Don’t worry ”mon chou” I don’t replace you! How could I ?! They are from Germany and Portugal and will stay here probably as long as me !
My residence is also going to change. Goodbye Brooklyn Heights ( snif snif) Hello Manhattan Upper East Side ( East Side of Central Park). It is on the green line, station 103 St.
MCNY is down on the red line, station Canal St.
Anyway, everything is perfect. My brain is going back to work and will use all its potential of productivity.. Mimi is happy…
I’m back to New York ! I didn’t know that I would miss the big apple so much. ( Not only for the reason that you all think ! ). This is my second home, this is the place that conducted me to discover what i really wanted from life and from myself. I tell you, this city is just magic !
I’m living in Brooklyn Heights, a really peacefull neighborhood at the border of Manhattan. Just a few metro stations from there, and i’m right in Manhattan ! So that, i can enjoy the calm of Brooklyn as well as the active life of New York! ( My consumption of aspirin had dramatically decreased since i’m in there ! ahah )
Around my residence, I can enjoy 3 different japenese restaurants (to satisfy my sushis crave !), a video club for my long nights during the winter ( actually the temperature is around 30C!) without forgetting a wine and spirits shop. This is just in order to remember my french roots and taste some of the wines from Argentina. (To enhance my cultural knowledge!).
Just in a few words : I’m happy.
Ohohohoh, by the way, i recommend you guys to see a movie from Woody Allen called ” Manhattan”
If you can watch it in english, that would be much better but i won’t blame you if you don’t. It could just makes you appreciate the beginning as it deserves it !
