A great friend flew in from Hamburg to hang out with me for a few days. We met on the 6 train in NYC, both of us had yoga matts on our backs, and as it does sometimes, the 6 local train turned into the 6 express train and we landed up on 14th street instead of 8th street. Running down the road to make our yoga class we both realised we were heading in the same direction, that was in 2002. Since NYC, we’ve lived in LA at the same time and shared allot of places in Europe. Here’s a fun picture taken at Andrea's Birthday in August 2009, 1 month from giving birth to her 2nd boy.
