I've been quiet the last few weeks because, to be honest, returning to the USA has been a real jolt to my system. On one level, I picked up exactly where I left off. Driving a car is like riding a bike. Finding salsa clubs was as easy as searching the internet. On another level, I've met up with friends and old colleagues and felt as though I've been living in a parallel universe.
After a few weeks at home, I decided to come visit New York City, which along with Medellin…and Venice…and Pokhara…and dare I say Paris…is one of my favorite cities in the world. I'm having some fun adventures after just 24 hours, so I look forward to sharing more soon.
