A former student, who is originally from Korea, shows me how to eat Korean food. We hit that special Manhattan neighborhood in the W. 30s which is filled with Korean restaurants. Lots of culture here!
My daughter and I spent Thanksgiving at the Bowery Mission, feeding the homeless. It was hard, inspiring work that got us beyond our comfort zone.
Went to my first Diwali party, in celebration of the Hindu festival of lights. Lots of fun. Sree Sreenivasan and his wife Roopa make great hosts.
Buddha Bodai is a Chinatown outpost for the popular Chinese vegetarian restaurant in Flushing, Queens. The food here is cut above the norm. Worth trying!
When I have back problems and other aches, the first person I contact is rolfer Cathy Allen. She’s my emergency room & preventative medicine.
Thai Son is a great place to eat authentic Vietnamese food in Chinatown. My cousins, who are from Vietnam took me there and showed me all the ways to wrap, roll and chew on this tasty cuisine. It’s one of the few places they’ll go to when they’re not in the mood to do their own cooking.
