But enough of the teary talk! Today I spent the day with my host family friends for Father's day. We went to a wonderful brunch, had some ice cream, walked around town, and ended the day at the beach with an Italian take-out dinner. Nothing to write home about (hence the lack of pictures), but I did make up for it with a nice serving of dark chocolate :) (I still have a ton from my Easter basket!)
I promised some more pictures from my time here in New York so far, so here you go!
First up, the NYU International Hospitality Investment Conference at the Marriott Marquis where I was awarded with a scholarship and asked to give a speech to the patrons and scholars. It was such an honor to be able to thank those ladies and gentlemen for their generosity to my school and students.
|Funny face--I'm happy though!|
|Speeching! Yeah, I just made that word up :)|
|That's me on the end, and our Dean of the school at the podium.|
Like I mentioned, the event was held at the Marriott Marquis, which if you ever get the chance to visit NYC, you should get a tour of the Marquis--it's incredible! Huge. Like, seriously. And of course, this particular luncheon was delicious.
I've got another day of work ahead of me tomorrow so "Tata for now!" and I'll catch you tomorrow with an update!
