Brooklyn visual diary pt. 1 // Basquiat at The Brooklyn Museum

Brooklyn visual diary. I arrived in Brooklyn, New York last night, and before passing out due to the jetlag, we had a nice, Caribbean dinner. This morning I managed to wake up at 5.30 am (thank you jetlag!), and to kill time before starting the day, we went for a long walk with my boyfriend’s dogs, Winston and Oliver. I am so happy to see those dear dogs again, and even though it was 7 o clock in the morning, they were more than happy to go out for a walk.PicMonkey Collage2
I am a big fan of walking, and there are so many beautiful places to see in this city that you notice by walking around. I went to a supermarket in Brooklyn and found skyr. Skyr is Icelandic for yogurt, and it has a high content of protein. Healthy and tasty! I think it is pretty clever that I found a breakfast alternative to the American pancakes they serve at most cafés with breakfast here in New York, which I, to speak the truth, wouldn’t mind eating every morning. Well, summer is coming, so I don’t think eating American pancakes every morning is a good idea. Besides from that I have a pretty hard reaction to flying long distance, my stomach starts hurting and I get nauseous, so I try to drink a lot of water and eat good and healthy food. PicMonkey Collage3 At a more decent time of the day around noon, we walked to Brooklyn Museum. Right now they are having an Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition showing his sketch books with writings and drawings. My boyfriend is a huge Basquiat fan – so of course we had to go! I enjoyed it too.

Now I just woke up from a much needed nap, not only was I tired because of waking up at five in the morning, but we also managed to walk almost 20 kilometers. While sleeping a marathon of the TV show “Keeping up with the Kardashians” was running on the TV. Only in America, haha! It is truly great to back in THE city, the only thing I can ask for is for the weather to get a little better. TTYL! (Abbreviations like a real American).

    I miss NYC so much 🙁 I’ve never been to the Brooklyn Museum but will put it on my list of things I still have to do in NYC. My list is never ending.
