What's the first thing I post when I get back to NYC? Is it about the reverse culture shock? How much jet lag sucks? How I miss China and milk tea? No, it's a shameless plug. I guess in some ways I adjusted very quickly to being back in the city of movin-n-shakin'. So yeah, I have a photo in this art show as part of the Bicycle Film Festival. You should go check it out, the roster is pretty impressive. And there is also the outdoor concert in conjunction with Solar One:
