Back to Cincinnati Part 2: UC, Downtown & Yoga
Hello everyone! Here's a continuation of my Cincinnati trip & few more pics I wanted to share. For the next few days of my trip, we got to explore all the things I miss about my hometown!
I was surprised to come home to a very different city than the one I had left years ago. It seems to develop more potential as time goes on. One of my favorite improvements are the addition of more bike lanes, which is the ultimate sign of progress IMO. Little things like that made me proud to call it home.
A few days before the 4th of July, we made a stop at a little diner called Park Chili in Northside for some good ol' Cincinnati chili! It was very quaint & the food was delicious.

Downtown Cincinnati has a neat place called Findlay Market that my boyfriend & I frequented when we first started dating. He said it reminds him of the markets in Cambodia because of their selection of meat, seafood & other treats.
There's a little Asian store where we like to go & purchase tons of foreign treats for friends & family. During our visit, we managed to buy some snacks, as well as tea & Asian soda. It's fun to see the vast selection of items, while my boyfriend thinks back on his childhood in Cambodia.
We attended the Ashtanga practice at the Yoga ah! studio in Northside, which was founded by my mom's guru, Amber Gean. The practice focused on strengthening every aspect about the body, including the soul. The fire that is my love for yoga strengthened tenfold & I felt incredibly revitalized to be back at the studio once again!
Oh, the natural light! Attending Yoga ah! reminded me how important it is to practice in a studio as much as possible. Having all that open space really allows one to focus on the breath.
