SUNDAY / 37

A chair! A CHAIR! I know, keeping it real over here. But the chair in question is my favourite colour and situated at Gjusta Bakery, in Venice Beach. That's quite a chair. A chair I sat on while waiting for the breakfast of my dreams, two days running because when it's that good (and that close to the airport the days your friends land), why wouldn't you? So much good smoked fish and salad and pickled fresh things and beautiful, casual feelings in the morning sun.

Gosh but it's hard to keep up with posts from the road. As you can see, this here Sunday was spent in Oaxaca, drinking beer with lunch and having an afternoon nap (which is fair, we had an overnight bus ride to Puerto Escondido ahead of us). Victoria and I were laying on the bed in our AIR BNB reading at about 4 PM when we heard music loudly, and occasional firecrackers. We went out on the balcony to see the most amazing parade of locals, a mariachi band (with a horn section), and 50 odd women wearing traditional skirts dancing down the street. We about died it was so beautiful. I think it was a  religious parade, as we heard others going on into the night as we headed off for the bus. Seems like a dream now...

First day in NYC, this Sunday. We landed on Saturday evening and after a shower at our hotel, I could do nothing but order some avocado on toast, fries and a negroni from room service before I fell asleep. Sunday we were up at a decent hour, got some Stumptown and wandered down to the Flatiron and then got the train down to SoHo for brunch at Jack's Wife Freda. As far as first days in NYC go, Kate and I were very very happy with it all.
