1. New York City

    This is a strange little blog post I'm making, but something I just felt like doing.

    Have you ever been to New York?

    I have. Several times now.

    As a European, New York was... dazzling. Skyscrapers all around, while potholes and garbage give the city the grim appearance (and smell) unlike any other city in the world. Yet, somehow, I felt strangely at home in this city. Going from Rudy's Bar in Hell's Kitchen (Seriously, go here. Awesome place.) to my ...
  2. Kun's Adventure in the U.S.

    Been here a week now and, by popular demand, here are the things I've discovered so far:

    I've lost about 10 pounds and finally managed to get some arm/leg muscles showing.

    Anyhow, I'm happy to say I feel much better and healthier. Going for a jog no longer exhausts me like it used to.
