I’ve gotten so used to people just being lazy and not wanting to do anything more than just collect a paycheck. You showed up for work, put on your name tag or changed into your uniform. There! What more could I possibly want from you?!
What better way to tool around town with Gilberto than to act like a tourist. Gilberto talks to me in Spanish, I pretend to listen and understand. We take photos of everything and ourselves. We stop at random stores and buy random things. Talk to the bartender and ask “What’s there to do in this town?”, which gives us New Yorker looks. This may sound silly but honestly, what really is a better way to see a city than to be a tourist? If you live in New York or just any town USA, you take it and everything there for granted. You know that flea market you’ve been swearing that you were going to check out? Yeah, well it closed three months ago. Stop talking and start doing already. Life’s passing you by and giving you the finger.
