My long journey to New York began bright and early, and despite the two days of travel, I arrived on the same day as I left. Thats right, I watched the sun rise twice yesterday! The travel was quite arduous, but more enjoyable than I anticipated. I arrived fresher than I thought I would, and rose early despite sleeping only 5 or so hours over the 2 days. These are the first few images I took on my morning walk through SoHo, which then turned into a walk over Brooklyn Bridge and then all over Manhattan. And so it was only an hour ago at half eight that I returned to my Queens home with sore feet and a camera fat with over 100 photos. Now I am off with the roomies for a Mexican dinner. Goodnight!
