Long Lost Cousin Cristina... haven't seen her in years, maybe a decade. She's been holed up in Brooklyn. I've been to NY a couple dozen times or something in the last few years, and have never run into her. She's been in the shop, and appears in some photos, but I had no contact info. Facebook works. We ate breakfast at a spot called Brown in the LES. Pretty good, comfortable, and easy. She's a political one, and gets in and out of trouble. Confrontation is her game. Hope she doesn't mind being blogged.
