My sister Happy came to my house to drive Yossi and I to DFW. She came at 5A and had to wait 20 minutes for us to get ourselves together. I am so lucky to have a sister who cares. She got us to the airport in plenty of time.
At the airport, after we got our boarding passes and has gone through security, we have an hour to kill. We went to TGI Fridays and got ourselves some omelet and French toast. Then, it was time to board the plane. With 20 minutes to spare before boarding, I came up with the brilliant idea to have Yossi’s IOS updated. It was so slow, it waited all of those minutes and more. Right before we have to board, installation was complete. I thought his phone would be no better than a paperweight if the update was not completed. Brilliant idea, mine.
We finally got on the plane and proceeded to sleep. We stayed up almost all night doing nothing, we had no trouble falling asleep.
The skies were pretty awesome when we were above Dallas. There was Tropical Storm Cindy that day after all and I guess that was why the clouds were awesome.
We took some pictures of it and then passed out. We woke up almost 3 hours later when we landed in La Guardia Airport.
We were excited to find out that LA GUARDIA PLAZA HOTEL is only 4 miles from the airport and they have free shuttle. We got on the shuttle and proceeded to wait for my husband and daughter to arrive on a flight 3 hours after ours.
This is Yossi at the lobby of our hotel getting occupied as I decide what to do. We surfed for places to eat because we thought we might be hungry already. It is actually a case of boredom and wanting something to do. We found LA GUARDA CAFE. Before checking out how far the place was, we ordered Uber. We were going to go to Queens Museum after we checked our bags at the hotel, however, we did not have coins for the bus to take us to the museum. We only have paper money and there was no place to buy Metro Card. We walked towards block 100 of Ditmars Avenue and then walked back to the hotel.
We ended up having to wait for Uber about half an hour, and then we found out that the place we want to go to was about an 8 minute walk from where we were. The ride was about 9 dollars and it was going to cost us 5 dollars to cancel after 5 minutes have passed. Bummer. We waited and got the Uber after we have to tell the driver how to get to the hotel. With about 80 minutes to spare this my husband and daughter arrive, we were finally at the cafe. The food was great. I tried their goat and beef stew. It came with brown rice with beans, and then plantain and cassava.
LA GUARDIA CAFE is a small place, however, the place is tastefully decorated and they office delicious food. Here’s Yoss and the food we got.
This is the brown rice, banana, and goat stew. Very delicious. I love it.
This is the beef stew with the cassava and it is delicious, too.
