It's so hard to say goodbye

'...If we get to see tomorrow
I hope it's worth all the wait
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

And I'll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday...'

Goodbye, Michel.

On Tuesday I received this in the mail:

Aren't they cool?

The shoes '100 People' were designed by Steve Monti and are part of the 1HUND(RED) collection, celebrating the 100th anniversary of Converse. As a (RED)product, 10% of the proceeds will go to the Global Fund to fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.

Last Thursday Jeanette, Miguel & I went to Lincoln Center for free performances of Stephane Wrembel (a Gypsy jazz guitarist) and Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca, as part of the Lincoln Center Out of Doors events. We didn't get to see/hear much of Stephane Wrembel, 'cause he was kinda almost done with his performance when we got there. But I really liked the flamenco dancers, they were amazing, the singers and guitarists backing them up too. I thought the women were especially powerful, I liked how they 'flipped' their dresses in a very cool way haha.
Too bad my camera sucked at taking good pictures...

Food 6

For all the nerds out there ;)

Green tea cream puff from Beard Papa's

I also tried the chocolate one (not on the same day! :P) It's kinda impossible to eat it without making a mess haha.

Ain't it Grant?

I stumbled upon this while I was running the other day. I thought it looked pretty cool and didn't expect it to be in the neighbourhood, so on Sunday I decided to take a better look. Apparently this is the General Grant National Memorial and the largest tomb in North America. This is the final resting place of Ulysses S. Grant (the 18th president of the USA) and his wife.

All that jazz

Well after only just a week Laura & Vince are already back in NL Too bad, because they couldn't join Lea & me when we went to see Chicago this Tuesday.
I thought it would be kind of serious, but it was pretty funny at times. Now I'm not a huge musical fan, but I was impressed how everybody managed to sing and dance without being out of breath. The ending was a bit so-so, but overall it was a pretty good show.After the show I got to take a picture with Michelle DeJean, who played Roxie Hart and Tom Wopat who played Billy Flynn. He's better known as 'Luke Duke' from the Dukes of Hazzard. His voice was surprisingly good haha.
