I took this photo while looking for a pawn shop. I wanted to sell a gold cross with Jesus on it, but it turned out to be fake. The pawn shop clerk said he knew it was fake simply by the sound it made. My Italian aunt gave it to me when I was a kid. What can you do? I was just trying to make extra cash for my trip to Nicaragua. That's where I am now and I'm heading south to Argentina. Harlem was my pit stop before take off.
