Well here goes for my first entry:- For some years now i had wanted to enjoy the experience of New Year in New York and last year I finally had the opportunity to do just that. Its all started with plenty of forward planning, taking into account of how busy it would be i booked the trip back in April last year (2003). The thought of an 8 month wait did not deter me one bit because i knew full well it would be wotrh it. So, it was all booked and i kept checking of my calender day by day until finally the 27th December finally arrived. I was up and of to Manchester airport and on the big silver bird and away to N'York. I stayed at  the Pennsylvania hotel opposite Penn Street Station ... read more

Another thing I figure I oughtta do before leaving this world is to spend new years eve in Times Square New York City. So after having gone to foreign countries 2 years in a row, I figure its time to get to know America a bit too. So, Big Apple here we come! What I remembered most about New York City is the fact that they actually have places to eat open later than 9pm! Boy thats a nice change from the Bay Area I tell ya. We could actually go back to our place at any hour during the night, and still buy some meatballs and sandwiches from the deli/grocery store around the corner. Very nice! ... read more

A few weeks ago, my co-worker, Van, approached me with an idea to go on a cross country road trip to New York City and Washington DC. She had to drive back to her hometown of New Orleans and decided to make an entire road trip out of it. She offered to pay for the rental car and gas. All she needed was somebody to help drive with her. Of course I jumped at the idea of going on a cross country trip. We set off just after 10pm after I drove to Sherman Oaks to meet her at her apartment. Our plan was to just drive straight to New York City while switching off driving duties every few hours. Van took the first shift so we packed all of our things into our little rental ... read more
