This is only a one-day trip into the city. On this trip, there is ample time to see it the way I had wanted to see it the last time, but without the tourists gawking. Everything is everywhere -too many people on plotted, flat streets. Although I relish in the city’ turmoil, this was an exaggeration as people looked crazed. I picked up lunch at a street vendor’s. It was terrible, and, I, of course, escaped to Central Park where everything is calm and there is no noise from the maddening crowds. But, wouldn’t you know, it was packed there as well. Instead of listening to birds’ songs, I found myself hearing children’s bawling and a street drummer who did not know how to stop. The sketch is from the park.
