TOUCHDOWN – NY Part One

Well it was a rocky start, but I am sure things will totally improve. Our plane was this close to touching down at LaGuardia and all of a sudden we were airborne again. The captain’s voice came over the intercom a little later to explain what happened. There was “something” on the runway so we had to get airborne again to avoid it. In my mind that was  – OMG WE ALMOST CRASHED!! I was thrilled to land in one piece 5 minutes later.

 

We took the scenic route to my friend’s house, and the people-watching was amazing!!  The people watching continued on the date I had tonight – I saw a pregnant woman wearing a tight long tee that said “I LOVE SEX” – come on, that’s ridiculous!!!

 

Being in New York is like being in a different world. There are so many people here of all different races and creeds, the streets teem with people all day long. Every street corner is like a miniature United Nations. One thing I already noticed is the police presence – it seems there are NYPD cops everywhere you look. Makes one feel a little safer somehow.

 

Anyhow, I am off to sleep my first night in NY, and I just know this is going to be a brilliant vacation……
