So today let’s start my holiday recap with our first official day in New York.
You can read about our (mis)adventures getting to New York here. We finally reached our hotel at about 4am still wide awake and bushy tailed (time zones are devious indeed). We slept for a few hours and woke up early, refreshed and ready to immerse ourselves in the city.
Time zones are funny things. We left the UAE yesterday to reach New York today. But when we got here it’s still yesterday! Trippy, no?
Anyway… our trip got off to a rather adventurous start. The past few hours have made me reflect that in all our travels we have been blessed with more than our fair share of smooth sailing. We’re barely into this trip and already I have learnt that we too often take things for granted.
How many of you remember these?
This was such an irreplaceable part of my UAE childhood. My youth has been formed of countless powder-y Flake bars.
