IMG_6613


Hi folks, how are u doing?

well I'm officially a tourist right now! 
I finished my internship and my family just came here from Japan!
How exciting! so I've enjoyed being a tourist :)
went to places that I've never been... take bunch of photos...

こんにちは、インターンも終わり、
はるばる日本から家族も来て、楽しくNY 観光中のマツウラです。
ずっと行きたかったけど、なかなか行けなかったところに行って、
たくさん美味しいもの食べて、またいつものようにたくさん写真とって。。
ほんとにたくさん。。


but today I'm gonna post the photos that i took at Coney Island.
i went there with my friends at work a few weeks ago. I know.. I should've posted them earlier...
but I've been kinda busy, so today... lol

anyway it was great weather and we had so much fun!

っま、今日は先々週の土曜日にインターンのお友達と
コニーアイランドに行ったときの写真をアップします。
今更かい!って感じで申し訳ありません。。

でも天気にも恵まれてとっても気持ちよかったですよ!

ヤシの木がないせいなのか、やっぱりビーチはビーチでも
西海岸とは雰囲気がちょっとちがいますね。

まずは、とにかく焦げそうに暑かったので、真っ黄色のマンゴースムージーを。
ぜったい黄色何号とかはいってそうですよね、これ。笑


IMG_6497


でもよいのだ。それがきっとアメリカなのだ。
と開き直って飲んでみたら、これが意外とおいしかったり。

そしてあの日本人もでている大食い選手権で有名なNathansのホットドッグ!!



休日ということもあり結構並んでましたが、想像以上にうまかったのでこれもよし!
食べる際は、このように「がぶっ!」っと勢いよくいきましょう。

というわけで、みなさんもコニーアイランド行きたくなったでしょ??笑
マンハッタンから電車で40分ほどでいけますよ。
海はきれいじゃないけど、まあ雰囲気、雰囲気(^^)

では、またぼちぼち写真アップしていくので、これからもよろしくお願い致します。


では、また〜


see u again!!! xxx

The last day of my internship...

IMG_6455


Hi folks! It's been a while since my last post. I have a lot to catch up on!

First and foremost, i finished an internship today!
I can't believe it's already over. But what an experience!!!
Even the internship was unpaid and only for one month, I've done lots of things.
started with walking around the city for making maps...
phone call, taking photos for the magazine, exploring the best coffee shop in NYC...
and went to a big interview as a photographer!
I'm really looking forward to seeing the magazine done!


IMG_4752


Interning gave me an insight into "real world" 
and what I'd be expected to do in a job of my major after graduation.
but it can also steer me away from what i thought I'd want to do and turn me in a new direction.


 IMG_4730


anyway, looking back on my experience, 
i can say that i picked the right company to intern with this summer!

Thank you so much!


というわけで、とってもいい経験ができました。
いろんな人と会って話して、なるほどこんな世界もあるのか。
って新たな見方ができるようになったし。
自分ってなにができるんだろ?ってちょっと分かった気がしたし。
そしてまたたくさん悩めることが増えました。
でも流れに身を任せてぽわ〜んってやってるよりは絶対いいこと!
悩みなさい!マツウラ!
そしてもっといろいろ挑戦しよ!って燃えてます!
分かるでしょ?『!』がイラっとくるくらい多いもん。笑

ま、とにかくニューヨークはいろんな人が集まってて、
いろんな文化があって面白いとこだなって思います。
汚いし、臭いけど、とっても刺激的なとこでした。


ま、まだ一週間あるけどね、


well... now i'm excited!! you know what? my mom and sister is coming to NYC this weekend!
It's been 11 months !!! we skyped a lot though... lol
can't wait to see u two! It's gonna be so much fun!!


well have a nice weekend guys!!

see u again!!! xxx

This week was lots of fun!
Started with The Drums live, did two big interviews, explored the city,
 and chilled out at Coney Island...

I left the office early and had dinner with my host family at Cilantro.
It's good to have dinner with my host family in the city once in a while.

IMG_4509



Hi folks! How was your weekend?
Mostly i spent this weekend outside enjoying the beautiful weather and exploring the city.

Saturday...

i woke up 12:00 wow... i was totally in "weekend mood".
But i decided to go out and look around some galleries in Manhattan.
So i left home around 2 pm and went to two galleries in Midtown but i don't remember the name..
i mean that was pretty small gallery so it didn't take me long time.

then stopped by cafe and grabbed large iced coffee and walked around Central park...

well it's weekend bunch of people were relaxing and playing at the park.
Families, couples, friends.... but me lol


IMG_4425

oh! i saw some weddings! yes it's June! right time!

anyway it was almost 6pm but still so HOT!!
 i couldn't stay outside anymore... so just went back home.
talking with my host family, chilling in my room and watching movie...

such a nice Saturday :)

IMG_4472



then moving on Sunday!

i woke up and had serials and banana for breakfast, which is my recent breakfast routine...
and i'm already tired of it... so i need to get out of the routine...
like... eggs, yogurt, grapefruits... which i used to eat for breakfast at ISU dining hall...lol
i think i miss the breakfast... just little bit though.. hahah


IMG_4509


Anyway, today i went to Smorgasburg, an open-air food market in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
I've always wanted go there cause some of my friends post the photos on fb.
so i was like I HAVE TO GO THERE!!!
I love outdoor food market! i mean who doesn't??


IMG_4572


This time i went there with my new friend, she's also an intern like me.
We met up at High Street station around 1pm and walked over there.
it was 10 min walk or something... not bad :)

But it was really hot!!! i mean really really hot!!!!
but i have to used to it... cause you know in Japan, there are more humidity than here... eww... i hate it.
but at least nice weather! no rain!! That's a great thing!


IMG_4555



well, when we get there, there are bunch of people and tons of vendors.
We just grabbed iced coffee (she grabbed bubble tea though...)
and looked around thinking which one are we gonna start with...



IMG_4565

IMG_4558

IMG_4559



IMG_4553

IMG_4515


and we found a long line... for the burger at Mighty Quinn's.
so we decided to wait for that. because it's simple! if there're so many people, that's the good one!
so we'd been waiting for 20 min or something... i don't even remember.. lol
but i just remember it was so hot. the weather was just killing us...


IMG_4528


But once i took a bite the burger, i just said "i don't regret what i did!"
It was great! the polk was really tender and the sauce was testy.
it kinda made me thirsty though... lol


IMG_4533


so we were chilling out on the lawn with the burger and enjoying the nice view of the skyline.
