It seemed crazy, but I was invited to be a part of a panel discussion for a publishing company. A one night stay in the Big Apple to hear my thoughts on a certain topic. I landed at 3 pm. By the time that I arrived at the hotel I was so sick. The cab driver liked to hit his brakes, A LOT. That with the combination of a smokey smell in the cab and the cab driver's rule that windows had to be rolled up all the time was a recipe for disaster. Luckily I brought some bags and he quickly rolled down his windows. Funny how fast silly rules can change :-).
But I did not let it slow me down (well maybe a little). I only had 3 hours to run around the city before dinner so I made the most of it.

|Delightful surprises in a city of concrete.|
|I love interesting architecture.|
|Look at that little house. Isn't it charming.|
|A pop into a bar for a sprite to see the score in the Italy-England soccer game.|
|Unfortunately not everyone appreciates green space.|
|No cost to go in and recharge your batteries.|
|More beautiful buildings.|
The ride was so smooth (I did take some meds also). As the gentleman was getting my bag out of the trunk for me I looked at him and said, "The ride was great. You were so much better than the guy yesterday." The driver looked at me with a grin and said "That's what my wife says also." :-)
