coffee and alcohol “没”酒咖啡

(English Text below Chinese) 回来后,除了想念地球另一边的朋友们,还想念不昂贵却美好的酒和咖啡。倒不是在中国没有好酒好咖啡,而是他们基本成了新贵炫耀身份的小奢侈品,我一小文人消费不起。月初在纽约,进地铁站时看见一只咖啡杯立在铁门上,出地铁站时看见艳蓝的黄昏天色里一酒店(liquor store,名副其实的卖酒的店,不是hotel)的招牌。似乎很讽刺啊。 Kind of funny (or ironic)  that I saw a coffee cup when I entered the metro in New york, then a liquor store as I got out, because affordable good coffee and good wine … Continue reading
