Harlem and the Whale


I went into the city Wednesday night to hang out with one of my best friends. Since he graduated a year before I did, I don't really get to see him often (and train tickets into the city ain't cheap). I took advantage of my spring break to visit his apartment in Harlem which is not as scary as people make it out to be. But then again, I was in the good part of Harlem so that might explain it.

He took Thursday off from work so we were able to roam around the city late at night and go bar hopping near the Columbia area. It was pretty cool seeing a different kind of college crowd out and about compared to the usual college crowd I'm used to at my University. Overall it was an awesome night and the main thing I can remember is just laughing non-stop. Definitely the sign of a good night. :)

The next day we both woke up extremely groggy but, after splashing some water on our faces and refreshing ourselves, we decided to venture out and take advantage of his day off. We headed downtown to Chinatown and grabbed some delicious dim sum (I seriously can't get enough of that place). That's where we took these pictures - I happen to look kind of silly in most of them since he wouldn't stop making me laugh. Then we spent the rest of the afternoon in the Museum of Natural History. I've been craving a visit there ever since I watched The Squid and the Whale last year. I don't remember if I my parents took me to the museum when I was much younger but it felt like my first time there all over again. Of course my favorite room is the one with the model of a blue whale hanging from the ceiling. The atmosphere there (if you subtract all the kids screaming and crying) is beautiful.
