I just got a text from A who went up to New York for a few days. I have to say that I am a little jealous. I have been meaning to go up there for months but have had to postpone the trip for different reasons. And now, I am stuck with an assignment for my Food Policy MSc, which is due on Monday. I’m writing about private standards in the agri-food industry, so it is very interesting, but I have to admit that I would rather be strolling on 5th Avenue or in Central Park. But after I have submitted my assignment and caught up on things here, I plan to go up for an extended weekend to visit Elisa, and J who just moved there. I can’t wait! New York is really one of my favorite cities!
