USA Wanderings: Arriving in New York
Yesterday I said good bye to California, San Jose, San Francisco and my sister in law. I had a lovely few days with her and really enjoyed getting to know her a lot better. I did have to leave and very early yesterday morning we made the drive to the airport so I could board my plane.
I am finding the airports here very strange. Not being allowed to have people take you to the gate is sad. You have to say good bye outside and then wait inside at the gate by yourself. They tell you to get there so early that it is so boring if you are there on your own. They also miss out on lots of parking fees because everyone gets dropped off. I’m glad in Australia that you can take people to the gate and then wait with them.
I did arrive in New York late yesterday, the flight was fun, but uneventful. I did make friends with a German girl and that helped pass the time.
This isn’t a great photo, I took it with my phone on the plane as we were coming into New York. I was getting excited at this stage. This part of the trip has been in the planning for over a year and I was finally here.
The apartment we are staying in is nice, and very convenient. It has a little balcony and you can see a lot.
If you click on this you can get a bigger view. I did a panorama of our view from the balcony.
This was taken last night as well from the balcony, the sun setting and being reflected in the buildings. I got a sunrise this morning too, but might see if I can get a better photo. I have 10 days to do it.
I will leave it there today, I have to get out and start exploring.
