@DanDumsha – “When we first arrived in New York, we flew with all these extra bags on the plane. A friendly guy approached us at LaGuardia when he saw all our bags and asked us where we needed to go. We had planned to take separate cabs to our hotel where we’d wait a few days for our apartment to be ready. He said “I got you” and had us follow him with our bags to the parking lot. Next thing we know, we were driving to Manhattan in the back of a white stretch limousine with TVs and refreshments…. And all our luggage. As we passed over the Williamsburg bridge, we looked at each other and couldn’t believe our luck. For less than the price of a single cab, we were starting our NYC chapter in style. That kind of magic seems to happen all the time in New York.
We just completed living in the East Village of New York City for one amazing and magical year. This picture was taken on our last day before we headed for Newark Airport to go back home to Vancouver. In NYC, Jon completed his fellowship in Neurology and i studied improv comedy and started my own improv show. It was an awesome year full of amazing experiences, fantastic food, and fabulous new friends.”
