Before the Game, in Alphabet City

Still life, NYC
Photo by myself, in Alphabet City.

Yes, you can get a can of PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon, an inexpensive beer) and a shot of alcohol for five bucks. Lol.

Most bars have crowds of onlookers outside, watching the World Cup games. This one was less inviting, with its curtains drawn.


It has been very, very hot and humid here recently , which is typical for New York summers. Between 11 am and 6 pm, it's best not to move around. Outside, there is the constant hum of air conditioning.

My fiance, Mark, dislikes this weather and has been threatening to move to California. I spoke with my parents in LA for Fathers Day. They are happy to report that the weather there is as perfect as always (70s, no humidity).

Somehow reminds me of the saying, that "one who has a WHY to live, bears nearly every HOW". Same can be said for Athens, with a temp. during midday close to 100F. Last night there were no electricity for the most part of it, probably due to the large usage of A/C. Please have a nice Tuesday.
