Summer in the City

Summer in New York City!

On our way to get our pedicures, Jean and I had to take a detour because the police blocked two blocks of the street; turned out to be a bomb scare but it was a false alarm.

Next stop–downtown Manhattan.

You never know who you’re gonna run into in NYC, last time Bill Murray and this time the world famous GRUMPY CAT!

    I’m glad that in NYC, you’ve been able to wear your outfit in black and yellow. That precious look that you could not wear in the fashion show. That gorgeous look reminiscent of a bee, and the beauty of nature. I loved it when I saw it on
    Now in NYC, you can wear it in all your splendor and beauty. A lovely trip, a lovely summer, and a wonderful reunion with Jean, right? Beautiful places, great vegan meals, and lots of fun. Who made ​​your pedicure is an artist, your feet look beautiful. I do not know this cat (in Spain is not known), and not know, ladies, but they all help to make your blog special and different, as I always say. Although, throughout the post, which I like, not to mention your beautiful smile, is the picture of hearts. Carmen and hearts, a wonderful couple.
