NYC’s Chinatown

Arnika and I went for a walk on Chinatown yesterday. We were super hungry and looking for a place to eat and ended up in a restaurant with terrible food, and dishes marked as Vegetarian coming with Oyster sauce… so we didn’t enjoy not as much as we could have, but still I took some cook pictures of the stores they have out there.

Sometimes soon we will go back just to explore the area, but we’ll make sure to eat first haha

Ratha Yatra NYC – 2014 – Part 1

This is an Indian festival known as the Festival of Chariots. Every year devotees gather in major cities around to help pull the Chariots carrying deities. This year Arnika and I visited the festival in NYC, at the Washington Square Park.

We got there after the chariots had already been pulled, but we still had a good time and enjoyed some delicious lunch. Here are some of the pictures I took of the festival.

 

Next I’ll post some pictures of the people I photographed in the festival.
