Caribbean Cruise...

I love traveling, although moving to a new country and city means that my travel is mostly saved for trips home to see my family and friends. Still we try and go for day trips and whenever possible get back to NYC, which as anyone who knows me can testify, is my all time favorite city. Manhattan, Toronto, Los Angeles ...oh and Florence and London! And pretty much in that order, because, well, I am not fluent in Italian and paying for everything in pounds would kill me! But it would seem that I have found a way to indulge my travel lust, and my food lust, by cleverly combining the two...eating at ethnic restaurants!
Last night I took a cruise down to the Caribbean. Okay it was really Larchmont, but still... We sat on the patio of Prado with Mabel, and enjoyed a sampling of seafood paella, sweet and spicy scallops, shrimp in some sort of dark hot molasses, and plantains! We drank Red Stripe, stayed until the sun went down and it was finally cool enough to wander back home to our apartment. As I lay on the couch with all the windows open, accompanied by the strange sounds of parrots that have taken over our courtyard and dug into a red velvet cupcake...I couldn't help but feel like I really had traveled away. Except of course without the actual sights and sounds and experiences of a new place and the people who live there. But then again, this travel bill was much cheaper.
