I was about 2 hours in Van Cortlandt Park, I visited the oldest house in the Bronx and I spend time reflecting and taking photos of squirrels.
When I realized, had misunderstood the instructions and it was too late to take the bus that would take me to wave hill. So, I had to return two stations by train, then take a bus and then run after a wrong number address for 20 minutes to finally get to wave hill …
I Spend some time in Van Cortlandt park, is a nice park, but Wave Hill is gorgeous!
There I met Gisela Insuaste, a nice Ecuadorian artist who graciously showed me the interior spaces and explained me about the place.
Mark Twain worked in this room for a while
Then I was a while with the group that was attending to the explanations of the vegetation and the Fall Foliage, but I preferred to walk and contemplate by myself the wonder around me.
I had been warned that I would like Wave Hill, however, had never imagined that I would be in a place like this today.
Suddenly I was in a fantasy garden with trees of all sizes and colors, it seemed anytime would come out elves, fauns and all kinds of magical beings everywhere.
I never saw such vibrant colors before
I wanted to take with me at least in pictures, every color, every plant, every leaf, but at the same time i did not want to lose time taking photographs that could not be a reflection of my entire perception.
It is place to take with you in your mind and spirit, There is no souvenir to replace that kind of memories
So, I admired the view sitting until the park was closed.
Then I went to Columbia University to see a documentary about a Brazilian musician living in NY for over 40 years, a pioneer in fusing Brazilian music and jazz.
I learned a lot about other cultures through the stories of people in New York.
Dom Salvador is a great character and a living example of immigrants that enrich the culture diversity of this City.
Impeccable, virtuous and full of flavor interpretations, closed the night.
