Starting Out in NYC

Tuesday, 9 Mar 2010 | Views [376] | Comments [1]

The journey began today with a flight to JFK in New York.  The weather was perfect but it was obvious from the very long line of snow plows on the tarmac that they have been battling the snow, as we all saw on TV.  Arriving at the hotel, we met up with ... Read more >
