bronx zoo

• A fairly late start to the day, but after a lunch near 86th in Manhattan, met up with Ginny, who introduced me to two of her friends, Meghan and Nadja – and we took the 5 train up to the Bronx Zoo.

• Thanks to Ginny’s (a.k.a. Virginia, as I found out later) work connections, we got to get into the zoo for free. Very large and expansive – you can almost forget that you are in NYC. Decent selection of animals – but the real treasure was the “Skyfari” – a chairlift over the treetops – good photo opportunity.

• NY style pizza with Matt just 2 blocks from the apartment, then a late night of freelance work.
