Cony Island: Brooklyn NY

My much procrastinated Cony Island post. It took my too long to write this out. For Vingle, I will condense my long photo diary into the Cony Island portion. But if you are interested, please do visit my blog. ----------------- My lovely roommate and I took a trip out to Cony Island for a delicious dinner and some photos. Little did we realize that the sun is setting a lot sooner these days, so by the time we got to Cony Island, it was dark. Nonetheless, we got out dinner and took a walk along the boardwalk. It was a bit strange to get used to the lack of people around us, but it was an enjoyable outing. Unfortunately the pictures did not come out as great as I was hoping, so forgive me again for that. I would definitely suggest making the outing, if you do, during the day. I was hoping for an old-school carnival feel at the island, but it felt a little deserted. Nonetheless, it was something I had been wanting to do for a while and I am glad we did so. Plus, anything is worth hotdogs and fries. I love fries.

Warsaw
Traveling by car, after crossing the customs border, Poland was the first country of “classical” Europe on our way (forgive me Belarusians, Russia, like Belarus, I consider as a “special” part of Europe, so to speak, with its own “special way” ). The first thing we noticed when we passed the border was the quality of the roads (speaking of highways). In Belarus, the roads and hightways are clearly better than in Russia, and in Poland (in my personal unprofessional opinion), they are better than in Belarus. Even in the provincial border areas, road quality is striking. They are clean (dry and no reagents), effectively decorated with reflectors, with convenient interchanges, navigation and a network of auxiliary facilities (gas stations, recreation areas, etc.). We previously traveled regularly by car in Europe, but now the contrast is too obvious – in a short time we managed to compare all the options. Since there was a long way from the border to Warsaw, we decided to take a break at an intermediate point on the route, and for some reason chose Wroclaw. And regretted it. The city was not at all tourist-friendly: there was no parking in the city center, there were no cafes near the central sights, the terrible quality of the roads (yes, we drove off the highway, and were worried about our car’s suspension, bouncing on numerous Wroclaw pits) intense traffic on narrow streets, a large number of neglected Soviet five-story buildings and other moments. Without having made a stop there, we went further to Warsaw. By the way, praising the Polish roads, I would like to mention the shortcomings. The main – is a surprisingly aggressive driving style of Polish drivers. They are pruned suddenly, sharply, with some kind of (it seems) pleasure. This applies not only to cars, but also to trucks: here you are driving on the highway with the allowed speed (110-130 km/h), and suddenly between you and the car in front appears a truck that will drive in the left lane for a long time, like overtaking another truck on the right … After the streets of Moscow (which I personally think are filled with very aggressive drivers), the behavior of motorists in Poland was somehow even surprising. We arrived in Warsaw in the evening, and immediately plunged into a Christmas fairy tale: the whole city center is decorated with festive garlands, the Christmas market is filled with tents with mulled wine and all sorts of goodies, the main square (on which, by the way, there is a huge skating rink) and the surrounding streets are all in paving stones, historical buildings well maintained and in excellent condition. In general, amazing. One of the central squares next to the Christmas tree had illuminated dates of 1918 – 2018 hanging. We didn’t immediately understand what was going on. But the truth is, Poland in its present form is a relatively young state – after the First World War it left the Russian Empire, where it fell after the war with Napoleon. Indeed, this year Poland celebrates a significant date. Taking into account the complicated history of relations between our countries in the past (only the campaign against Moscow in the Time of Troubles is worthwhile, not to mention its inclusion in the Russian Empire, and there is no point in mentioning the recent history at all), it was interesting to see with our own eyes the real attitude towards Russian tourists. We didn’t notice any special attitude – all the tourists there are treated equally friendly. Well, except for dogs :)). Because finding a dog-friendly cafe in the center of the city turned out to be a daunting task. There were many pleasant places, but almost everywhere we were denied because of the presence of a dog. And only in one wonderful place – the cafe Ciao, Napoli! – we were very friendly received along with our pets. Not only it was unreally tasty there(the local pizza is worth trying), also a mega-friendly service. By the way, despite the fact that Poland has been a member of the EU since 2004, it has not yet introduced the European currency, so in all tourist places it was necessary to operate in the local currency – zloty. In most cases, it was not difficult to pay with a card, but the question of tips, for example, had to be decided on the situation. The next morning we strolled through Warsaw in the light of day, and the charm in a sense dissipated. In addition to the historical center, there are many “modern” structures in the city (apparently, since Soviet times), and such a city did not cause much of tourist interest. Of course, we understand that with more time, we could probably feel the atmosphere of this city (take a guided tour, walk through museums and historical sites). But for us it turned out to be enough this time to begin acquaintance with it in this way – for an intermediate point on the route, it turned out to be an excellent choice.

This Uber Driver changed my perception
I was sitting tight in line for a ride at the air terminal. At the point when a Uber taxi pulled up, the primary thing I saw was that the man was cleaned to a splendid sparkle. Sprucely wearing a white shirt, dark tie, and newly squeezed dark pants. The Uber taxi driver leapt out and adjusted the vehicle to open the back traveler entryway for me. He gave me a covered card and stated: 'I'm Joe, your driver. While I'm stacking your sacks in the boot, I'd like you to peruse my statement of purpose-after sales service.' Shocked, I read the card indeed. It stated: Joe Mission Statement: "To enable my clients: · Reach their destination in the fastest possible means · Reach their destination in a secure and pocket wise manner I was puzzled, mainly when I saw that within the taxi coordinated the outside. Flawlessly perfect! As he slid in the driver's seat, he stated, 'OK, like some espresso? I have a virtual canteen of customary espresso and one of Java espresso.' I said tongue in cheek, 'Much obliged; I'd prefer a soda.' He grinned and stated, 'No issue. I have a cooler with normal and Diet Coke, Milkshake, water, and squeezed orange.' Nearly faltering, I stated, 'I'll take Milkshake.' Giving me my beverage, Joe stated, 'If you'd like something to peruse, I have The New York Times, The Daily Mall, and Wifi. As we were pulling endlessly, Joe gave me another overlaid card, 'These are the stations I get and the music they play on the off chance that you'd prefer to tune in to the radio.' Also, as though that weren't sufficient, Joe revealed to me that he had the cooling ON and approached if the temperature was perfect for me. At that point, he instructed me concerning the best course to my destination for that typical day. He likewise let me realize that he'd be glad to visit and inform me regarding a portion of the sights or, if I liked, to disregard me with my contemplations. 'Let me know, Joe,' I was astounded and asked him, 'Do always generally served clients like this?' Joe grinned into the rearview reflect. "Actually no, not generally. It's just been over the most recent two years. During my initial five years of driving, I invested a large portion of my energy grumbling like the remainder of the taxi drivers does. At that point, I found out about the POWER OF CHOICE one day." The intensity of the decision is that you can be a duck or a hawk. 'If you get up in the first part of the day hoping to have an awful day, you'll once in a while frustrate yourself. Quit griping!' 'Try not to be a duck. Be a hawk. Ducks quack and grumble. Falcons take off over the group.' 'That hit me. hard' said Joe 'It is about me. I was continually quacking and grumbling, so I chose to change my mentality and become a falcon. I glanced around at different taxis and their drivers. The taxis were filthy, the drivers were disagreeable, and the clients were despondent. So I chose to roll out certain improvements gradually. A couple at once. when my clients are satisfied and happy from my service, I accomplished more.' 'That is a thumbs up by me,' I said. 'It sure has,' Joe answered. 'My first year as an Uber driver, I multiplied my pay from the earlier year. This year I'll likely fourfold it. My clients call me for arrangements on my mobile phone or leave a message on it.' Joe settled on an alternate decision. He chose to quit quacking like a duck and begin taking off like a hawk. Begin turning into a hawk today - one little advance each week one week from now - and next That is the Real Meaning of Life. Develop yourself and your abilities in an unexpected way. Be a hawk — .not a Duck. There are such a large number of ducks in the world at this moment, quacking and quacking and quacking. Decide to be the distinction. I so pick.

American Foods That Canada Does Actually Better!!
I lived in Canada and in the U.S - No offense - but I feel like Canadian foods are better at some point :) I still miss Timhortons so bad!!! Coffee tasted great, Timbits and Iced Caps were just great in everyway. (1) Fries with Poutine Canadians take plain french fries to a whole new level by adding cheese and gravy to them. I used to eat this almost everyday in the back old days~ (2) Beer Okay, beer may be a drink, but it is definitely something Canadians do better than Americans. In Canada, the average “normal” beer has a higher alcohol contentthan American beer, with a range of 4.0 percent to 6.1 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) as compared to America’s 4.1 percent to 5.9 percent ABV. (Oh come on it's better than Coors for sure) (3) Chips Forget salt and vinegar, barbecue, and sour cream and onion potato chips. Canada has thebest flavorsthat you cannot buy in the US. Try Lay’s Ketchup chips, Ruffles All Dressed chips, Lays Dill Pickle chips and Hickory Sticks. And yes, we even havepoutine-flavored chips. I still miss the ketchup one <3 (4) Coffee I know America runs on Dunkin’, but that’s only because you guys do not have Tim Hortons (in most states). Tim Hortons’ coffee isfar superiorto that of Dunkin’ Donuts and if you haven’t heard of a “double double,” you sure are missing out. Try Ice Caps - I remember it was under $2 and tasted so much better than Starbucks coffee frap (which is like $3-4). (5) Milk You might be confused by this one. How can milk be better in Canada? Two words:bagged milk. Stop that face you’re making right now and understand just how amazing bagged milk is. Not only does ittaste better out of a bag, but it also is much more fun to pour, not to mention cheaper. It's cheap and tasty. You can use the milk one at a time - put the bagged milk in the plastic jar and once it's done, just thow away the garbage~ VOILA!! Click LIKE <3 if you agree!!!!
