New York Welcome

On Tuesday evening I flew into New York, taking in a breathtaking view of the Manhattan skyline. The buildings looked like sparkling giants and seemed close enough to touch from the window of the airplane.

Walking through the airport, I was overwhelmed with the diversity of the people around me. So many colors and costumes, so many different cultures represented, so many different languages being spoken. We're not in Oregon anymore!

My cab rides, three so far, have all been wild and included lots of honking and near misses. I was happy to arrive at our quaint hotel on the upper east side of Manhattan. The staff at The Franklin are very experienced in customer service.

I think that is Jeremy. Look at the brazen scofflaws: standing where they oughtn't.
