Cory's off with Adam and work, so I have the apartment to myself. This morning I walked to a corner grocer for a banana and chocolate soy milk. Later, I used Cory's block as a stair-master. His street inclines at a 45 degree angle and it's about 1/8 of a mile long. I put on my iPod and climbed the whole block 5 times. It took 20 minutes and I was dripping in sweat! Then I had a nice long shower and set out to explore.
I took the subway to the Civic Center figuring I could find something to eat near the theater. When I emerged from underground I was smack in the middle of a farmer's market in UN Square. I had fresh tamales for lunch. Mmmm. Then I wandered through the vendors killing time before the show.
Finally, it was time to see "Wicked." It's being staged in a great, beautiful, texturally-rich theater named The Orpheum. The show was amaztastic and fantagasming! Incredible music and costumes and sets and lights and on and on and on. If you're a fan of musicals, this one is NOT to be missed! You'll never watch "The Wizard of Oz" the same way again. :)
