Things that were amazing about dim sum lunch: wading through the tens of thousand of Orthodox Jews on their way to Foley Square to protest proposals to draft them into the IDF. O. said, I see many men wearing the same hat. The pea shoot dumplings. Talking about M. with C. and L. C. sitting on the floor picking through her mom’s pockets for change. That we had just seen seals on an island in New York harbor, up close and everything.
