While the iron is hot

I’m back from outre-mer! Outer-sea! Overseas!

Another vacation, another sentimental voyage. It was painful to leave – oh my New Yorkers, oh my Ithacan – but stumbling back into my lovely little apartment (with the luggage that REALLY packed a punch), at least I was coming home to Paris. Parting, such sweet sorrow! Finger → throat.

This was by far a trip worth reviving a dead blog for. =D Chinese New Year with cousins dearly missed, leap-frogging Manhattan behind delightful native-New Yorkers, lounging in Yuan’s room transposed from Singapore to Union Square, shuttle flights on propeller planes, SKIING, walking across arctic Ithaca then thawing out beside the fire of desire… (Kidding. The rhyme was too bad to pass up.)

It’ll take me a while to figure out what to leave in about these past two delirious weeks, but with any luck, the university strikes will last longer. And all this with another vacation in another fortnight! Ahhh. I revel in the righteous indignation that my passionate contemporaries feel compelled to demonstrate. =]

Ithaca’s gorges.

Gorge-crossing. The dear old violin’s been going places.

A bientôt, and let’s hope the strikers don’t stop till they get what they want! La solidarité !!
