Yesterday was a terrific day -- the weather was pretty much perfect, and I walked from the Lower East Side across the Williamsburg Bridge into Brooklyn, and then up through Greenpoint to Long Island City, Queens. I was out virtually all day taking photos and just enjoying myself. Found a great used clothing store where I got a groovy tie-dyed t-shirt for $8!
Then, last night, I went to see Jane Goodall speak about her work with chimpanzees. When I was a kid we got National Geographic magazine, and anyone who read the Geographic in the 1960s knows all about Goodall and her work. So seeing her live was quite amazing. I think it's fair to say she helped awaken in me a love of Africa, which I've never lost.
