Sunday morning we were picked up at 8 to be dropped off at the airport. At 11:45 as planned we left the gate and flew west for 8h10 minutes to arrive at New York’s JFK airport at just minutes passed 2 in the afternoon. We were pleasantly surprised with the attitude of the immigration officers. This must have been the friendliest we encountered in the 22 years we”ve been in the states. After a long wait we got our luggage and passed through customs to get on a bus that brought us to Grand Central station. Here we boarded a minivan that got us to our hotel.
After settling in we just walked 2 blocks to Times Square for a quick bite to eat. Then it was time to relax and prepare our stuff for Monday, the first full day of our holiday.
