Well, I made it up to the Big Apple with nary a blip on the screen of anxiety. Planes flew smoothly and on time. People were busy with their own books, headphones and naps and didn’t freak the staff out causing any unnecessary stops. Pilots flew brilliantly and well.

And, I’m enjoying my stay in the bustling city. Been to an opera – very cool. A few movies – excellent. Have taken long walks along avenues and the East River.

The weather is mild and lovely. Today, traveling is a good idea and I’m so lucky to do it.

Saturday we have our flight to London. Till then, I’m going to enjoy the food, the sites and the ambience of NYC. I’ll let you know how the rest goes.
