Today is is the first anniversary of the longest day of my life where I travelled from Adelaide, leaving at 0630/ 6.30 am local time, to New York, where I arrived at 1720/5.20pm NY time.
Here are two photos: one, of the Rockies (I presume), taken not long after leaving LAX en route to JFK, the other, taken the next day from the Empire State Building, showing a sliver of Manhattan Island with the Statute of Liberty in the background.
In the State Library today I looked briefly at Ilf and Petrov's Road Trip
I didn't quite feel like this, but three days wasn't enough. I hope to return for a repeat dose or two.
