|Life After India|
|Our return to New York City|
Marcus returned to New York in August 2003, and I returned to my NY life a month later in September. I started my next semester of school one day after I got back and started back at work a week later. It would be my last full semester of full time school and full time work. Yea!
This page has our favorite pictures from September to December 2003 - we took trips to Tennessee, upstate New York, and Pennsylvania. We spent weekend afternoons in Central Park or the Botanical Gardens - took rides on the Staten Island Ferry, played with our cats, and studied and worked and then studied and worked some more!
Julie's trip to Knoxville, Tennessee
Some friends joined us out at a Latin music concert where we danced merengue and salsa and samba. We were actually astounded at the huge latin population in Knoxville. It's grown so much that you can now get good ethnic food supplies at Kroger's!
I met other friends at a bar after the Tennessee football game.
The aerial mountain picture is a shot from the plane of the Smokey Mountains - they're part of the Appalachian Mountains and are called Smokey because of the low clouds. I really miss the mountains!
A Sunday afternoon in NYC
Trip to upstate New York with Marcus' parents
Marcus' parents, Sandie and Jim, came to visit in October. We traveled to upstate New York for three lovely days, spending time in the Catskill Mountains and Woodstock.
Hanging out with the boysI had the pleasure of hanging out a few times in NYC with the IIMC exchange students, Nakul, Nimish and Vivek.
Nakul and I even rode the Staten Island Ferry from downtown Manhattan to Staten Island and back. We timed it perfectly as the sun was just starting to set as we took off. Although it was windy and cold, the view of the Statue of Liberty and downtown Manhattan were worth it!
My friend Greg came into town from Tennessee, and he joined Nakul and me for the ferry ride and some more sightseeing later that weekend. We met Carson Kressley in a bar in Chelsea - Greg and he actually have a mutual friend from Knoxville so we talked to him for awhile. He let me play with his little puppy, Nemo, for 10 minutes while he took a call outside. Honestly, he was the nicest guy!
Christmas in Pennsylvania
