Wherever I go, I like to ‘blend in’ and not feel like a visitor or an outsider. So really learning to understand and ride the subway system in NYC was a big deal for me. .
The first time I went I tried it and it was too much, too fast for me. On top of that, it was extremely cold. I gave up and settled on taking an Uber everywhere. .
When I returned a few months later, I was determined to take the subway everywhere I went. It took a little planning, but I got it! I think I’m a pro now! .
So this photo is important because it commemorates the exact moment I first felt like a real New Yorker. .
Now all I gotta do is work on my east coast accent. 😂
