Glad I got to write about springtime the other night, because it appears to over. Hot and slightly muggy now. Summer in NYC.

Had sushi with Don out in Forest Hills last night. I was surprised to see what a trendy neighborhood Austin Street in Forest Hills is. Besides delicious spicy tuna maki (with black sesame seeds!), it was great to catch up with Don. It’s always nice to catch up with a friend who you’ve known for a long time (almost 15 years, for Don). It’s a different perspective on your stories, problems and goals than you have with newer friends.

Trip plans continue at a leisurely pace. The biggest controversy is that my mom really wants to stay in the Hote Machu Picchu, at $269 a night. I’ve never paid that much for a hotel myself anywhere, and rarely paid over $30 a night the places I’ve traveled. We’ll see what happens….
