Viva Traveling!

Right now I ought to be at Paris CDG changing airplanes with a luxurious two and a half hour layover.

Instead I am still at the Leipzig Airport. My first flight had a mechanical problem and I’ve been rescheduled to arrive in New York at some unseemly late hour. About the only plus is that I can now justify using a taxi to get to the hotel instead of figuring out the $2 bus plus subway to get from JFK to Manhattan.

With any luck, I’ll be in my hotel, getting ready for bed by midnight, eastern daylight time. Presuming I make the 50 minute connection in Paris.

Anyhow, I am either brave or foolish: despite the fact that when I woke up this morning there was white fluffy wet stuff on the ground in Weimar, I left the house with only my jean jacket and the knowledge that it is supposed to get warmer over the weekend in New York City—the thing I least wanted to do was carry my heavy winter coat with me to New York, then leave it in the hotel room all week, only to carry it back when I return.

Right now I have an hour and a half before boarding, a glass of merlot next to me, and a wifi connection.

What to do…

  • I think you’ll be o.k. with a light jacket. It’s supposed to be in the mid-50’s in New York for the next week.

    Down here in Conservative Hell we’re expecting 70’s the rest of this week.

    Have a nice trip!

    It’s warm and rainy here. Have fun on your trip … I am so jealous of my traveling friend!
