This stuff is made in New York City!

Whenever I think of New York City - here is what I think of:

Pace Picante - "Pick up the original - pick up the Pace" (It's actually made in San Antonio TX)

Aside from the commercial advertising in my head, I still have always wanted to travel there but never have gotten the chance. Rob had a meeting at Brookhaven Nation Laboratory on Friday in Long Island so we extended our weekend and spent it in Manhattan. We found a fabulous deal on a 3.5 star hotel room right by Penn Station for only 100 a night. WooHoo for "name your own price" on Priceline.com. The room was just as large as our Geneva apartment and actually had a better kitchen. Sigh.  We hit up the major tourist spots - Rockefeller Plaza, Grand Central, Times Square, Central Park and we ate the famous foods. (Cheesecake, Bagels, and Pastrami) We spent Valentine's day dinner at a great sushi bar named Kanoyama which satisfied our longing for high quality sushi since we moved abroad. Here are some pictures from the weekend.

It's a bird (inside the terminal of Newark), It's a Plane, It's Manhattan!

Wow! You got such a deal on your hotel room. That price is unheard of! Your photos made me really hungry for NY food...

Finding Simplicity

From discord find harmony; 
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
