We’re Makin' Canookie / Estamos Haciendo Canookie

La versión español está después de la versión inglés. 

WE'VE BEEN IN the City of New York for a little over 24 hours. Our flight arrived an hour early. Passport Control took less than 10 minutes. Our bags were waiting. The quickest, easiest arrival we've ever experienced at JFK. We stepped right into a waiting taxi. And we then spent about an hour and a half in New York traffic (with a wild driver). But our hotel is a pleasure. We had lunch at an excellent local burger place. San Geraldo began his siesta while I went and got US phone service for us both. I then joined his siesta after which we went to Rocco´s Tacos for dinner. Delicious, but way too high-energy for our jet-lagged selves.

Today I took the subway to the Brooklyn Museum, about a six-minute ride. The breathtakingly beautiful Brooklyn Botanic Gardens are behind the museum. After lunch at Mia´s Bakery, which is just down the street from the hotel, I had a canookie. Remember canookies (click here)? It´s a combination of a cannoli and a chocolate chip cookie.

The Kid Brother works Wednesdays, so we'll see him Thursday morning.

Today's photos were all taken with my phone because my camera sat safely on the dresser in the hotel room!

HEMOS ESTADO EN la ciudad de Nueva York por poco más de 24 horas. Nuestro vuelo llegó una hora temprano. El control de pasaportes tomó menos de 10 minutos. Nuestras maletas estaban esperando. La llegada más rápida y fácil que hemos experimentado aquí  Fuimos directamente a un taxi esperando. Y luego pasamos aproximadamente una hora y media en el tráfico de Nueva York con un conductor salvaje. Pero nuestro hotel es un placer. Almorzamos en un excelente restaurante muy cerca. San Geraldo comenzó su siesta mientras yo recibía el servicio telefónico de los EEUU para nos dos. Luego me uní a su siesta y luego fuimos a restaurante Rocco´s Tacos para cenar. Delicioso, pero demasiado energético anoche.

Hoy tomé el metro hasta el Museo de Brooklyn, alrededor de un viaje de seis minutos. Los impresionantes jardines botánicos de Brooklyn están detrás del museo. Después del almuerzo en Mia's Bakery, que está justo al final de la calle del hotel, tenía un canookie. Recuerde canookies (haz clic aquí)? Es una combinación de un cannoli y una galleta (cookie) con trocitos de chocolate.

The Kid Brother trabaja los miércoles, así que lo veremos el jueves por la mañana.

¡Las fotos de hoy fueron tomadas con mi teléfono porque mi cámara estaba segura en la cómoda de la habitación del hotel!

SAN GERALDO JUST BARELY AWAKE FOR LUNCH.
APENAS DESPIERTA PARA ALMORZAR.

  6. Well, you lost me with the fish tacos, but you won me back with the canookie. That sounds vaguely naughty. Enjoy your visit.

  7. I don't believe I've ever had a canookie. Is that a New York city specialty?

      I had never even heard of a canookie until my first time at Mia's Bakery last year. I think it's their exclusive specialty.

  10. That sounds good for passport time especially in a high volume city like NYC. While I've flown domestic, the wait times were never the nightmare-ish hell I hear they are.

  11. I've only ever been in New York once, for an afternoon. The only place I went was the Brooklyn Museum, in order to see Judy Chicago's "Dinner Party," which is on permanent exhibit there.
