Today, we venture out!
Mom's over the mild bladder infection, I've had my "me-time," and Dad's excited to get going again.
We head for the subway, proud that it had only taken us about 30 minutes to figure out to which stop our hotel was closest and how to get to a couple of key locations. (keep in mind most things are written in …
