Live from New York, it's Saturday... morning? Ah well, whatever. I'm on vacation. Hopefully that #SNL reference didn't go to waste.

Tru-Def, Mom & I took the bus to get here & let me tell you, that was the worst bus ride I've ever been on. The lineup for NYC buses went out of the station & halfway around the block! We met this Jamaican guy, Jason, who was in the midst of his first bus trip. He said that his Dad told him to just cross the border, go to the airport in Buffalo & fly to NY but Jason opted for the bus as it was $100 cheaper.
Queens was a nice time. We BBQ-ed, watched random fireworks from other houses on the block & did the stuff that all families do. I mean, all families do go to three different stores to look for seedless tamarind, right?
After a day in Queens, it was on to another bus to D.C. Tru-Def & I sat in the front of our double-decker bus, on the top level of course. This bus made just one stop & got us to Washington early. The next few days in Virginia were awesome. Food, drinks, music, jokes, history, architecture, planking, shopping & yard work.
Then we left Virginia & headed back up to The Bronx; but not before I got to meet two of my nieces. No lie, my nieces & nephews are the cutest human beings on this planet, regardless of the country they live in. In fact, they're all so cute that I'm giving them an entire paragraph in this blog post.
In short, this was a great week. It's nice to just step out of the world you live in for a while & be in a different place with the people you love. We didn't get to see everyone but shout-out to those who made cameos during this adventure. From NYC to D.C. & from VA to T.O., t'was a blast! Now I just have to figure out how I'm going to repay all of you when you show up in my city.
