Around the world in New York

Renee and I went to Brighton Beach yesterday. It’s a long subway ride from Manhattan, but it’s like visiting another country. Almost everyone was speaking Russian and had a distinctive look about them. We failed to pinpoint exactly what made the difference, clothing, makeup, hair dye, maybe all of that. but it was interesting to observe. The sun was warm as we strolled on the boardwalk. We had a lovely lunch at the Ocean Cafe, Renee bought a hat, we looked at all the food for sale. I would have liked to buy a hat, but never found anything that fit, and that I would like. We also would have liked to buy some of the prepared food, but the shops were so crowded we just looked and left. After another long subway ride we came home and veg’ed out until dinner time when we ate in an Indian restaurant.
