New York City

I recently went to NYC for the Easter break (mostly) for a conference. It was A LOT. I'm still processing...actually, I'm just posting this blog because I'm going to Lausanne next week and won't have any time in between now and then to do anything other then prep for the multitude of things I have to do beforehand.  

I visited the American Natural History Museum and it was pretty legit. I also visited the Brooklyn Museum, which had a beautiful Georgia O'keefe exhibit and a wonderful exhibit on Black feminism. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of that because I lost my phone...

Just walking around in New York was nice, even if everything was soooo faarrrrrr

I really enjoyed the name of this restaurant (hi, mom)

Central park! I saw so many fun people from disparate parts of my life (high school, choir convention, undergrad, Berlin, internship) I also met some really cool new people at the conference, which had the counter-intuitive effect of reminding me of my tenuous relationship with Lugano and small cities in general. After answering the question "What's Switzerland like?" a few times, I was really confronted with answer: "....less than ideal." Oh well, I shouldn't complain. I am lucky to be here, after all.
