It’s been an interesting few days here. It’s kinda weird to be navigating a city solo—especially when I’m used to the ease of the subway (at least easy to me). Busses have always been a bit more alien to me—I think I’ve used NYC busses on an average of 2-4 times a year, max. But so far it’s going decently. Weekend ones are slower…I need to be more on the ball when it comes to giving myself plenty of time to get from point A to point B.

But it’s been kind a cool to notice the little things. It’s been cloudy and rainy since last Thursday…but the plants are so, so green and lush. I smell flowers and eucalyptus often as I walk past particular houses. Since I don’t have internet at home I’m manning the Starbucks every morning…on the way there I see this:

Bad lighting, but hopefully you get the idea. These are from a house a block away from me…you can smell the apples as you walk by. Awesome. I hope the inhabitants are able to harvest these, seems a shame to let ‘em go to waste.
