'Twas just another day. Although I am certainly a visual person who prefers aesthetically-appealing things, I ate ugly food and loved it. Case in point, lunch: garlic green beans, hummus, and a veggie burger atop a bed of greens.
Ew and delish. Later in the day I drove my aunt's car into the city--a terrifying first for me--and then subwayed myself over to Brooklyn to meet Sofia and Leslie for a yoga class at Williamsburg's Kula. I landed my first headstand without the wall, but other than that we had mixed feelings about the instruction. Despite the fact that our dinner plans afterwards consisted of a closed Good BK, we still managed to have a fabulous time together as usual; eating good French food, drinking good cheap wine, and reveling in good conversation. It was an ordinary December day, I suppose, and I don't doubt that even though I have to run around for some last minute Christmas shopping, today will be one as well.
Yet even then, there's announcements like this one that make it special: As of January 6th, 2011, I will be in San Jose, Costa Rica. In the days following I will be elsewhere throughout the country and Central America, including (hopefully) both Panama and Nicaragua. <- And that, my friends, is the abroad detail I've been making you wait for. Wishing you a beautiful, happy, and healthy holiday!
