New York, New York

The view before me is green. Lush,thick and wet with Lagos rain. The grey skies, light with mist hold beauty in the clouds. I see it all from the departure lounge. I am staring through glass while listening to Alicia Keys sing about New York in ‘Empire State of Mind’.

I sing along and dream of the concrete jungle, hotdogs, blueberry muffins and steaming cups of cappuccino. Central Park, Lady Liberty, Times Square and lots of inspiration. Plus meeting up with some of my favourite people, like norma of platanos, mangoes and me.

But first there is a week in Colorado and Utah and then the bright lights will appear.

New York, New York!
