My friend Fran who is far wiser than I am, that is, she thinks in whole complete intelligent sentences and I tend to think in vague loose colorful images, in pieces of Matisse, she told me today and when she tells me something I often (not always) listen that it was a good idea to tell you whoever you may be what I DID and SAW because I LOVE LOVE LOVE this city and Do and See a little more than usual. She used the word Tips which is not a word I like. TIPS? Really? Still I will tell you that today I went to the TAIJIN Massage Parlor (they are all wonderful. I go on 72nd between Columbus and Broadway) for a 75 minute (REALLY) amazing massage for $58 which should be more but I try to be as generous as possible with my tip.
Then we had dinner at Pasha on 71st Street in a light gentle Turkish space.
And after dinner we all went around the corner to 65 West 70th to a secret Moroccan bar downstairs which is inconceivably perfect.
There. I tried to tell you.
