Koen and I are back from our 14 day vacation in New York City! Over the next week or so, I’ll be doing a day-by-day post of our trip. Day One includes seeing my parents and Christina, the 29th Annual Brazilian Day Festival, that happened to take place right next to our hotel, Rockefeller Plaza, Times Square, burgers, and cupcakes!
