Brian and Sun's Visit - September 18 - Day 2

On Friday morning we slept in a little and had breakfast at my apartment. Sun wanted to go get clams and oysters at the San Gennaro festival in Little Italy, and then our plan was to go on a Circle Line cruise around Manhattan.

After Little Italy, we headed to the west side to the Circle Line cruise port to do a 3-hour cruise around Manhattan. I had done a Circle Line cruise back in 2002, but I learned a lot on this one - I think I remembered more since I live here now.

After the cruise we did dinner in Koreatown. The picture below are the appetizers - I guess this is a standard set of appetizers in Korea. This is included in the meal price - like chips and salsa or bread. Sun ordered a noodle dish, and she kept asking me to try it. She wouldn't tell me what kind of meat it was, but I did break down and have a bite. After I ate it she started laughing and showed me the menu - it was beef intestine. I kind of lost my appetite after that.

We ended the night at Serendipity. The ice cream sundae was much needed after the beef intestine :)
