party, lots of friends, but someone was missing. Mitchell's best friend James lives in Albuquerque and was not able to join us. He and his wife Vandi came a few months later for a brief visit and to bring a "little gift" to Mitchell.
Little gift, my eye! Tickets for three performances at the Metropolitan Opera - you know, the one in New York City!
We are off on the train Thursday morning to NYC to see three great opera stars in three great operas and Porgy and Bess on Broadway. Be still my heart.
I plan on walking Central Park and finding all the blooming trees and flowers in the City, and a museum or two, and a New York deli, and I don't know what else. Camera is already packed and ready to go.
Fortunately, Vivienne has recently been posting a series of ideas for what clothing to pack for a week in Paris. Paris, New York - pretty much the same things, don't you think? I found lots of good ideas on how to mix and match and should be able to do this long weekend easily, moving from daytime sightseeing to evening performances, and without carrying everything I own.
More to come over the weekend!
