Catering To All the Senses

This morning I'm headed to a part of the city that I have no experience with, really. I'm not even sure where I'm going. It might be Harlem or it might technically be Washington Heights, heck it might be Inwood for all I know but I think it's one of the first two. I'm going to visit Jan and Anna who both live up there. We haven't laid eyes on each other in far too long and it makes more sense for me to go to them than for both of them to travel to me. Plus, see above re: never been there. I want to expand my horizons a little, and my photographic opportunities. There's a coffee shop in Jan's building so we're meeting there for a little nosh, perhaps a toast to Anna's birthday, which was last week, and hopefully some pictures. I'll keep you posted about those.

I feel all grown up when I "get together for coffee" with friends. I don't drink coffee but I drink decaf herbal fruity tea or hot chocolate or whatever and hang out. There's something really comforting about a good, neighborhood coffee shop. I like to write in them and chat in them and read in them. Suffice to say I'm really looking forward to the adventure and I hope you're planning something equally fun for your Saturday.

  1. Yay for new experiences and new photographic opps! As for coffee shops, I think those places are such creative refuges is that everyone there ENJOYS themselves, sipping whatever delicacy and chatting with friends. Coffee shops - and I DO love coffee - are among my happy places.

    I'm going to see Dark Knight after some major gardening - want some bush beans?

  2. Didn't work out quite the way I'd hoped. The camera battery was uncharged. Whoopsie. Had a good time, though.

  3. Sorry about the camera, but glad you had a good time. I love meeting a girlfriend or two for tea, gallons of it!
