  1. hii, hope you two made it over ok. just remembered that when you’re in chinatown in nyc, you may want to try bubble tea. the place i usually go to is closed, but yelp recommends a few, including: Vivi Bubble Tea (49 Bayard St between Bowery & Elizabeth St), Ten Ren Tea Time (79 Mott St between Bayard St & Canal St), Boba Life NYC (11 Pell St, between Doyers St & Bowery).

  2. me again! if you don’t want to spend a lot of time at the nat’l history museum in nyc, then just go straight to the top where all the dinos are.
