New York City – in Manhattan with Mari – November 2017 – feeling good in front of the Christmas Tree at Bryant Park
In November 2017, I was able to visit New York with Mari Yokoi. We stayed at the Ace Hotel in Manhattan. It was quite nice.
Though we only stayed at the Ace Hotel, we did check out a lot of different hotel lobbies. Mari took me to my first Broadway Show, ‘Miss Saigon.’ As well, we were able to see my friend Frank Corva and have dinner with him at a great pizza restaurant.

Obwohl wir nur im Ace Hotel waren, haben wir viele verschiedene Hotel-Lobbys besucht. Mari nahm mich zu meiner ersten Broadway-Show mit, Miss Saigon. Außerdem konnten wir meinen Freund Frank Corva sehen und mit ihm in einem tollen Pizzarestaurant zu Abend essen.
2017 年 11 月、横井麻里とニューヨークを訪問することができました。私たちはマンハッタンのエースホテルに泊まりました。それはかなり素晴らしかったです。
私たちはエースホテルに泊まっただけですが、私たちは多くの異なるホテルのロビーをチェックしました。麻里は最初のブロードウェイショー「 Miss Saigon 」に連れて行った。同様に、私は友人 Frank Corva を見て、素晴らしいピザレストランで彼と夕食を取ることができました。

Big sleep at the Ace Hotel – I think we were up a little late 🙂
Front door to the Ace Hotel – Actually, a little tough to open that door – jammed or something.

New York City – November 2017
Shopping for Victoria’s Secret underwear.
It’s amazing all the things people love instead of people.
Spacious lobby at the Ace Hotel – Though a little noisy.
Cool Fridge in our room at the Ace Hotel – too bad there wasn’t much free inside.
Comforting elevator sign at the Ace Hotel.
On our way to see the Broadway show Miss Saigon.
The lobby of the theatre where we would see Miss Saigon.
Spacious theatre for Miss Saigon.
The show is about to start. My first time to see a Broadway show, and my first time to really see Miss Saigon. I remember the images I saw in books when I was a little boy. People hanging onto the helicopters as they took off from the American embassy. The actual pictures, not this storybook telling that tries to give many rich people a feeling of “they care” simply because they show up for the musical. Or maybe they just blatantly don’t care like the person next to me. I cried when I saw the images as a boy, and I cried again in the theatre thinking of that time – when I started to see what society is – this disgusting society and the disgusting people who support it. This world is madness, mentally deformed. All captured in the stupidity of caring about the minutiae of one’s appearance without a care of the real physical suffering of so many people/animals in so many places. The stupidity and ugliness of spending money on one’s fingernails while people die from starvation or massive violence. Hey! Maybe set up a foundation to give away free books of a cuddly little feel-good story promoting your name is all a rich piece of shit needs to do to feel good about their self. Hmm… No.
