Ok now that I have some more time to gather my thoughts I'll write more on the events on this past week.
Saturday-Raining. Luckily there was a conference, Armenians and the Left, www.armeniansandtheleft.com
So I went and saw a lot of old friends that I made while I was interning in Armenia this past summer. It was the happiest I felt in a long time and a great welcome to New York. I got my book signed by Robert Fisk, and sat through some lectures, met new people, and just hung out.
Sunday-Went to South Sea Port, Ground Zero. Said goodbye to my friends who were visiting, then went to Central Park. That night I met up with my old roomate in Armenia and another friend from my stay in the homeland.
Monday-Spent all day with an ole' friend from Armenia. Went to Washington Square Park, had some great pie at the Union Square Farmer's Market, then went to Brooklyn (I'll write about Brooklyn in more detail).
Today-Tuesday-Went to the United Nations, sat in the General Assembly hall, snuck around a bit, then started the Model UN conference. I'll go back to these topics in more detail in the near future.
