This avocado is to a Haas avocado like browned butter is to regular butter, or parmesan cheese is to mozzarella cheese. The flavor is just more complex and intense, like the fats are richer or something.

Oh, and it is HUGE.

Greetings from A-Town!

I think I discovered the secret Central Park Time Travel Research Laboratory.



Also, just moments before I was standing in a particularly overgrown area of the park.

Some dude: Daayum they sure let this place go.
Some lady: It's an ecosystem, fool!

Oh hey, look. A painting! Click the image to find out what else is on that canvas.



WARNING: To say this is not safe for work would be an understatement. Not safe for work, mind, etc. You cannot unsee this, even if you tear your eyes out.

If you're crazy enough to want to see it, here's the full-res original image, or some highlights from the canvas below. The artist shooed me away before I could get a "better" shot of it.




Aaaaaaand now... you probably need a unicorn chaser. Here, see the adorable man I bought a t-shirt from. Isn't he the best?

So anyway, HELLO FROM NOO YAWK CITAY

I'm watching the Hudson river turn silver waiting for the NYC fireworks display to start. My flight landed way early and I got an awesome cab driver who took me to the perfect spot. I gotta say... This is pretty awesome. Maybe I'll be able to post fireworks photos later.

This is it. I'm packed, I'm ready to go. This is everything I'm taking with me, including what I'll be wearing in the morning and what will be in my pockets (except for the jacket and hat I left by the door).

Total weight: 23 lbs.

That includes:

- passport + wallet (the key ingredients)
- legal documentation that I have yellow fever and hepatitis a/b vaccines
- three days' worth of clothing for mixed warm/cool wet/dry weather
- a sun hat and a rain hat
- hiking shoes and open sandals
- emergency medical supplies
- full compliment of toiletires
- lots of sunscreen and mosquito repellant
- two kinds of anti-malaria medication
- emergency food rations
- two water bottles (one with crazy good filtration system)
- two digital cameras (one pocket-size, one not so)
- string mono/duo-pod and gorillapod for camera stabilization
- insanely bright LED flashlight
- 24 AA batteries for flashlight and cameras
- all kinds of crazy foreign power adaptors
- one laptop with power supply and external hard drive
- one Audio-Technica AT2035 condenser microphone + shockmount and XLR cable (special request from a recording studio I'll be visiting in Arusha)

and... some other stuff I can't remember

I really can't believe it all fits...

I even managed to keep the laptop and 1-quart bag of 3-oz containers (!@#$!@#$ TSA) easy to take out and put back in for the inevitable security check.



So, anyway. Off I go.
