One evening in Chinatown, New York (March 2017). Nothing there is particularly familiar or reminds me of my home. However, some things are so very universal. Seeing a Super Mario themed backpack and a Barbie doll totally made my heart jump with joy. (Not that I was looking for familiar things, but you know how it can be with childhood memoris.) And how omnipresent are Fjallraven Kanken backpacks these days?! Oh and those colourful umbrellas street vendors have... All the same, all the different.
