And then it was January 6, and the feeling came to me that I would have to leave this fantastic city in two days. So off to see the Brooklyn Bridge and then to the Guggenheim museum to treat myself to a massive amount of black and white paintings, drawings and sculptures by Pablo Picasso.
I always had a soft spot for his work, but here I was in Picasso heaven! The museum itself is a work of art too, and sometimes you don't know where to look.
That night The Bad Plus were playing at the Village Vanguard. For some reason I had never seen them before... Amazing players!
