This town has my heart for sure.
I can’t pass a year without thinking about it. It’s a city where I need to go, to get a fresh eye, to get inspired, to be refueled. I love everything about it, even the Noise and it dirty trashes.
I went to New York for the first time in 2010, I totally fell in love with the city. I was so surprised that strangers in the streets talked to me. It was completely new to me. I remember back then that a building worker asked me if it was my first time in town and when I said yes he told me that it will not be the last. He was damn right. I went back in 2013 for 3months. I enjoyed every bite of my time there. Taking pictures in Central Park during a freaking cold snowing day, exploring every corner, celebrating holidays like New Yorkers. But even after 3 months I was not bored with it, I wanted to see more, to taste more. I was also happy to go back home but a few months later it stroke again: this irresistible envy to go back. I am not sure if I could live there, but there is one thing I am sure of: its unique power to reenergize myself and to renew myself. You can go there many times but, one thing is sure, each time is different. The city moves so fast you will always discover something new.
Dear New York, I love you! I love your people, your spirit, your noise, your donuts, even your dirty trashes, your subway, your food, your energy and I especially love what you bring me and how I feel around you. I miss you buddy, I can’t wait to meet you again.
