|The first part of Astoria that you see coming off the highway|
Then, we walked a little further to a really quiet street and suddenly LoLo said, "This is where I had my first kiss." Awwww how cute! Right near the spot where he had his first kiss was this mural. We decided to strike our most "New York" pose:
Also in LoLo's neighborhood happens to be a Mister Softee base (I know!!) so there are trucks coming in and out of the neighborhood at all hours of the day and night. LoLo took the picture below and wrote this caption: "This truck was taking the turn at 90 mph so that Erin the ice cream chaser couldn't catch up to him!"
On our way home from New York, we got stuck in traffic on the Hutch so we stopped in the Bronx in our old neighborhood to try to wait out the traffic. Fresh Tortillas is a hidden gem of the Bronx.
Yes, you read that right. Fresh Tortillas: Chinese, Japanese, and Tex-Mex food. All in one place. Cooked by the same people. I know it sounds weird... we definitely thought it was. But then we tried it and we were totally hooked.
We also love their bubble tea. Mango for me, blueberry for LoLo. If you're ever in the Pelham Parkway area of the Bronx, you need to go to Fresh Tortillas!
Till next time, Queens (and the Bronx)! You have treated me well!
Oh and since Bronx is the real star of this show, here he is having a fit. At first I couldn't figure out what he wanted...I tried feeding him, I tried giving him water, and nothing. But then I picked him up and he curled right up on my lap and was as happy as could be.
