time to fly
It is so hot in New York that they dressed the Empire State Building up as a giant bomb pop to remind us all to eat ice cream. (Though you couldn't forget in my apartment, with the truck chiming outside throughout the entire day.)
If you want to fall in love with this kick-ass city all over again, or you're simply melting in the grimy heat, skipping town is a good idea. I'm just going to go ahead and skip the whole hemisphere, and head to where it's winter. Nope, not snowy New Zealand...no skis for this beach bunny.
I'm off to Brazil.
I'll be there for the next month. Stay tuned for adventures and misadventures from Rio, Bahia and the Amazon...
