And greetings to you all Facebookkers!
I am, writing on my laptop, sitting in Bryant Park in Manhattan. Free
wi-fi internet..New York is really cool, and today the weather is
Where to begin...? First couple of days were a bit
confusing, I was aslo really tired and jet-lagged, so, on Wednesday,
after checking the fireworks for July 4 near Brooklyn Bridge, I just
crashed at the first place I found on my path.
But yesterday I moved to this amazing 'hostel' in Harlem that I fell in love with big time (see pic).
The Landlady is a character, this middle aged Canadian woman called
Giselo that is running this place in a bizarre way: you get only one
key for the front door, there is no reception or anything else, and it
feels more like a houseshare than a hostel, eheh. Actually, more like a
squat really....maybe that's why I like it.
Tonight I will meet
one of the editors of NEED, the magazine I'll be working for in
Minneapolis. Am really excited by their project and looking forward to
On Monday I'll be moving towards New Orleans to work on
my first piece for them, just a online follow-up of one of their
stories, but, hey, it's a start!
Ok, Stay Tuned for more. ciao for now.
