Stomping the 'hood

Now fortified with "the food of the eagle," Jason and I flew on our journey. Target was a bust, but we took the opportunity to walk past and look into Rao's. I hope I get invited to eat there one day. And, as if going for a gold medal, we trooped further downtown to visit Jason's parents for a brief visit.

Now, this wasn't the longest walk I have taken, but the added weather and conditions made it just that much harder. My legs were happy we took the bus home. It was then that I felt grateful to live in such a great city and wonderfully rich and diverse neighborhood.

So the next time your to do/"Honey Do" list calls for a short public transportation ride, instead, call a friend, lace up those walking shoes and hit the pavement. I guarantee quality time with great conversation while being productive and active, and always having a new food experience!

From the west to the east, thank you, Harlem!

Enjoy, get eating and thanks for reading!
