Moving to New York has been the craziest and most exciting move. We have been prepping, planning, and packing for what seems like months. We also sold EVERYTHING!! We sold my car, Tyson’s truck, our dressers, and everything that is too big for only one person to carry. Tyson’s Motorcycle, or as I like to call it his other love, is safe and sound in Vegas. We shipped the rest of our belongings to New York in a 7X7 POD and left Salt Lake with 5 suit cases. Today we walked 6.5 miles (according to the Fitbit) and looked at 5 apartments. The air is very humid compared to Salt Lake and my hair has been struggling. It takes twice as long to dry now, bumskies! There is lots to learn and so much to take in. Even the huge piles of trash on the side of the street at night fascinates me. BUT I am proud to say we are using Google maps less and I had a “tourist” walk around Tyson and our Broker, right up to me to ask for directions. Did I know where she should go? Nope. Maybe next time.
Of course we had to get pizza not only our first day, but our second as well. We found an awesome pizza joint that is close, fast, and delicious.
We just got back from a quick trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where we did every kind of activity we could fit in our schedule. Dinner cruise out to El Arco Famoso (the famous arch), 4-wheeling along the Sea of Cortez, swimming, crab hunting, snorkeling, eating (endless pina coladas), and shopping. We got all of our fun in before we move to NYC and crack down on finding an apartment and starting work.
The food was to die for! We tried everything Tyson said would be yummy… and then some.
Few things I learned:
- The children will chase you around and beg for pesos until your heart caves in and you do it. BUT if you give one a peso they are start swarming like ants on a cookie crumb.
- Kisses are “medicine” and when your boat driver, Tony, tells you to give each other some “medicine” for the picture you do it.
- They have a famous cave they call the Mexican factory. Tony said “Two go in, three come out”. On the other side is Pirates cave “Three go in, two come out.” Not to be mixed up.
Finished our last night in Mexico with some Cocos Frios (cold coconuts) and watched the surfers. Adios muchachos!!
