Meeting family in the Bronx

Couldn’t come to New York without visiting family! The woman is my grandma’s sister and the man is her husband. I never met them in a way that I could actually remember it, the last time we saw each other is was 3 or 4 years old. Now, 20 years later, I went to the Bronx where they have been living for the past 45 years. Three stories high, these sweet 80 year old people live in a small but oh so cute apartment. Honestly it instantly felt like coming home. The warm family love, the Italian food (he is Italian) and the Dutch words between the English sentences my sisters grandma said to her husband; I had the time of my life. She felt like my grandma too, almost as much as my real grandma. I felt a instant connection like the one I have with her sister. They cooked a delicious meal for us which we enjoyed together, had a lot to talk about and FaceTimed with my mom and dad back home. After the food we went into the neighborhood to take some cool shots (unfortunately went the wrong way but still super nice pics) and later they brought us back to the hotel in the center of NY. Thank so much <3

Empty subway

When the subway train is empty, we take advantage of it! Was quite the challenge tho since I was hanging on one leg but the train was moving a lottt. That’s why I’m not sharp in the last picture but hey it’s still cool :))
