First of many pre-Saint-Paddy's-Day weekend posts!

Anyway, I went to New York with no specific plans, and ended up meeting dubaiwalla and subsequently bklyn_in_dubai. And dubaiwalla says he wants to find this particular guy who sells vegan "dosas" out of his truck. I'm thinking, in Manhattan? A borough of 1.6 million people? Then we somehow walked directly to it, and had a flippin' great meal. I had heard of dosas before but never tried one, and this thing was so fresh and spicy and vegetabley and colorful, that I think I'm converted for life.


Thiru preparing our "Pondicherry" dosas with samosa in the middle.


Samosa in the middle!


One of zillioons of newspaper articles taped to the truck.


Tasty, wow. Hot soup in the styro cup. Yum.

These NYC pictures will probably compromis three or four entries, as I took SO many pictures. To dubaiwalla: It's after 5:00pm in Dubai and I still haven't slept. We were delayed two hours out of New York because of that snow storm. When we took off, I could see the whole city was white. I would imagine that might cramp your plans! Did you make it to some kind of shelter okay? Did you not freeze? Are you alright? I hope the snowstorm didn't totally ruin any of the various plans you had.
