Hydroplaning All The Way To New England

Road trips aren’t necessarily my favorite, not when we’re driving for more than two hours, but heading north isn’t as bad because of the scenery from the road. As opposed to driving south. We were headed to Massachusetts for one of Nduku’s friend’s pre-wedding celebration. The plan was to leave before rush...

Mapping Our Walking Tour of Manhattan

The lady and I were in New York this weekend, visiting Ingrid, one of Nduku’s friends. We were fortunate to stay at Ingrid’s Bed & Breakfast in Brooklyn — a pleasant surprise since I thought we were sleeping on the sofa — staying in the “Purple Room.” Since Najwa was back in DC at a going away...

At first we [Nduku, Najwa, Mike and Jenny] were going to stay in one using an employee discount Joanne English, a friend of mine, was offering. The issue, being a week before Christmas, the only ones available were not...
