That's the thing that I love about Manhattan. No two neighborhoods are ever the same. Lower East Side gets a bad rap for being a little grittier by night, with its clubs and bars. In all honesty, I still can't say it's my favorite. What I will say, however, is that our walk through the Lower East Side to Hester St. did provide a nice change of pace. Not to mention, its host to the ever-wonderful Hester Street Fair, which breathed of ethnic fusion foods (Chinese/Indian, Japanese/Kosher, the list continues...).

The end haul? Fortunately and contrary to expectations, we did not stuff our faces in the above mentioned food. But, boy, did I wish I did. Our focus lay in jewelry shopping, which resulted in me getting a cute, gold ring for a whopping $12, and Isabel getting the below shown jade arrowhead necklace.
I'm still disappointed that I have yet to get a matching ring to this "Hot Sauce" embellished beauty. Alas, you win some you lose some. It was lovely to know that after all these years of living apart, we still can get around to catching up every so often. Hooray, sister!
