Almost without realizing it, I have spent more than a half-month in the Big Apple. To tell the truth, everything has flown by so fast I haven’t even been aware of it. My life here is very happy because I am living my dream with my wife. There are no limits to the opportunities in NYC. It is easy to feel like a New Yorker in a city where everyone is one from the moment they start living here. Also, living in Harlem has allowed me to immerse myself in several different cultures. This makes it even more exciting! You must have an open mind and not pre-judge people, including yourself.
You can see by the pictures that the rhythm here is frenetic. Many experiences are packed into each day. I haven’t even seen 1% of what New York City has to offer. There are millions of streets and neighborhoods yet to be explored. I will try them all with Rusko and Abby! This is just the first chapter in a long list of reflections under the section “A malagueño in New York” (a malagueño is someone from Malaga, like me :)) In this section I will describe my feelings and impressions of a city that doesn’t give you time to breathe, which opens its arms and traps you in a big bear hug. Hugs for everyone!
