I’m back! Last night I arrived in town after a rather difficult three hour wait at border control… I made my way into Manhattan and found ‘Buskers’ – navigated by luck rather than any rational or map and played a couple of songs to a very friendly audience – good start to the trip!
Today the sun was out and I felt far less exhausted than on my previous journey to New York. I met up with the lovely Gordon Raphael in the east village for ‘the best coffee in New York’ just before he made his way to Seattle, so great timing there!
I walked to Union Square, siting black squirrels and lots of boys on skateboards (they were mostly wearing ripped jeans – perhaps the 90s are making a comeback?)
I’m about to play a mini set at Ceol in Brooklyn, looking forward to seeing all the big city folkers again!
