Who Am I? Here’s My Blurb!
So to tell you a little about me, I am life long New Yorker going through my mid-life. I am a proud Black woman of Haitian descent who is straddling multiple cultures at all times. I grew up trying to be “American” but realized in adulthood that I don’t care to be narrowed down.
I am a major food enthusiast, all kinds and all cultures; but no dairy, no alcohol or pork, thank you. I am a cooking show viewer from PBS to Food Network; an art lover from the time of Pharaohs to Banksy; a makeup hoarder from Wet n Wild to Chanel; a shoe fanatic about anything that actually fits; bargain shopper ALWAYS; an anime watcher, a tree-hugger, an amateur photographer, a forever student, and last but not least a shower singer superstar! I think you should keep learning from the cradle to the grave because otherwise, “What’s the point?”.
Yes, that’s all the fluff. But in essence, I am someone who realizes how blessed I am to be exposed to so much culture from my own heritage and from where I live and I want to experience all of it and beyond with as little expense as possible.
What is a Rendezvous?
Rendez-vous is the French word for a date, appointment, or a fortunate chance meeting. Nothing heavy, we’re just hanging out and learning new things and finding new favorites. Ok, let’s go and rendezvous with this amazing city, and occasionally we can use it as a springboard to somewhere else!
What Is My Blog About?
Rendezvous En New York is about my travels here and beyond it, and my many varied interests, from exciting to mundane with a limited budget. I’m going to show you that even though New York can be crazy expensive, it really doesn’t have to be unless you want it to be and you don’t have to do the same ole same that everyone else is doing to experience the real New York. I like to try new things and tell you if it was worth it. Have you heard of something new that you would like to see? Well, I’m game for trying anything new (besides breaking laws) because anything can happen here.
The mission of my blog is to take you along with me through my beloved city, to make it less intimidating, to make you feel like you could walk the streets as if you’ve been here before to enjoy it the way I do every day and not feel limited because of the size of your wallet. In a city of 8 million, we always have room for one more and when we’re lucky we can enjoy other spaces too.
Enough people are doing the same thing and going to the same places. How about we do something different? Come let’s meet up and see how a native New Yorker spends time in one of the most exciting cities in the world where there’s always something new and affordable to do. I would love to share it with you!! Join me while I get into the new things that are constantly popping up and the mainstays that give New York City its unique character!
Until our next rendezvous…
