Returned

We left our New York apartment at 9pm Monday and we arrived home at 11pm Thursday. While we somehow lost a day when crossing the date line, we did spend a lot of time travelling back. 15 hour flight, 7 hours in Hong Kong, 10 hour flight. That's 32 hours of just airport travel, never mind travel to and from the airport. We are pretty whacked and I am about to shower and go to bed.........except I should just be getting up New York time.

There were no holiday disasters. We did not forget anything and neither of us became gravely ill. We weren't pickpocketed or mugged in New York.

It is 1.21 Friday as this is written. Normal blog transmission will begin in the near future. Excuse me while I indulge my self with a piping hot and gushing water wasting shower and my own bed.

  5. Hope you enjoyed NY as much as we did. Before we visited the place, i didn't know what all the fuss is about. Now I wouldn't mind living there for a little while. I love Chicago too.

    1. Victor, when we booked there were good reasons for choosing the long flight, but I can't remember now. 15 hours is much more civilised.

  10. Piping hot and gushing are the best types of showers.
    Good to hear there were no dramas in New York or anywhere else.
    Now get some sleep.

  11. hmmm 1.21 Friday hasn't arrived yet! But never mind. The cold July weather will sharpen your mind and bring some focus. Last Sunday was the coldest and wettest day since 1980!

    Re Victor, I still think Vancouver is stunningly gorgeous.
