Summer is basically here. We had a heat wave over the weekend and therefore also switched on our AC for the first time this year. The other solution, of course, was to eat a lot of ice-cream. Oh, and to go and sit in the shade in Central Park. That is what we did yesterday when we met up with friends for lunch there. Afterwards we sat down, chatted and played “Kingdomino” (so much fun!).
Else, this week I went swimming again for the first time since ca. December. Last fall I discovered the NYC Recreational Centers, public centers with gyms, exercise classes and often swimming pools for little money. We only pay $150 p.p. annually, which is huge. Anyway, while I am not a particularly good swimmer, I love swimming and paddling around. When I went again, I enjoyed it immensely. Hopefully I get to go swimming regularly again from now on.
