|2 places I want to go||8 places I've been|
I hated it. Obviously, I have mixed feelings about this place. I just don’t get it anymore. I live upstate (actually, the western part of the state), and the contrast is overwhelming. I can go outside on my porch, perhaps talk to the neighbors, and breathe in fresh air. I don’t think they even know what fresh air is in NYC. And the people! I know I’m getting old, I don’t like the rush of people, I just don’t get what is so exciting about being around a whole bunch of people. You’re not going to make friends with them, you’re not going to make money off of them. The other thing a large group of people contribute is dirt and grime.
When I think of NYC, I just think of the stench that we had to endure as we approached the city. It is DEFINITELY noticable, and the grime. NYC is just plain dirty. I don’t know, maybe it’s just Harlem. I should be going there in just over a month, so we’ll see.

this was back in ‘87, i think. 53 Academy. Japan was sooo beautiful, and the people were soooo nice. It’s just amazing to see a culture doing things so differently, and being successful in it. I’ll never forget the terraced hills or the rice paddies EVERYWHERE!!!! Or the fact that you can leave your bike at the train station for a week, unlocked, and it won’t get stolen!over 5 years ago
