Not only did I ride public transportation in a big city by myself and feel quite comfortable, but I rode the subway, in New York City, wearing platforms. See you later, #18.

(Maybe you don’t think the platforms added an element of intrigue to the adventure, but trust me: When one normally alternates between flip flops and Converse All Stars, platforms always add intrigue.)

More to come from my New York escapades once I learn how to get pictures off of my camera. Or, rather, once Jared gets home and figures it out and does it for me, which is far more likely to be the case. After all, I’ll probably still be busy patting myself on the back for unpacking my bags already.
