I'm a DC girl. I love the city, the green spaces, and the buildings shorter than the Washington Monument. Say what you will, but there's a wonderful symmetry to the roads and government buildings, and it's quite a change of pace to head to New York. Perhaps it's the scope of the city, with the vastness and the multitude of people, but NY is really not my scene. I enjoy traveling there to try out different restaurants, get my fix of Japanese items from Kinokuniya, Uniqlo and Mitsuwa, and Broadway shows. This time I went for a work orientation, and enjoyed meeting the colleagues, but really missed being back home.

Day Two: Cuban
Delicious chicken with carrots and potato.

Beef and chicken versions next to a salad of cucumber, tomato, lettuce and avocado.
