The Crowd on MacDougal Street, in the Village

Olive tree cafe, nyc Photo by myself on MacDougal Street in the Village.

The streets were filled with people in the Village, Sunday night.  People were standing outside Artichoke, a pizza place on MacDougal Street, near Minetta Lane. You can see the pizza ovens, just inside the door.

Restaurants, bars and stores had their doors flung wide open. People were dining on the streets and just milling about. It is the height of tourist season.

I'm posting from Tokyo, where we landed last evening. Japan is 13 hours ahead of New York time.

My fiance Mark and I will be traveling to Fukuoka Tuesday afternoon, where we'll be staying with friends for several days. We last visited Japan a couple years ago.

We'll then visit Kyoto, which is a gorgeous historic area, before returning to Tokyo and then New York. So far, so good. As early as 6am, it is wildly hot and humid.
