Early lobby call for our flight to NYC. It takes us forever to get out of London due to traffic. Arrive at Heathrow with plenty of time to check in and we'll need it since we chartered into the country and our passport info isn't in the computers.

Get checked in and proceed to the mall/waiting area to await our gate announcement. Stop at the magazine store and Starbucks and spend the last of my British Pounds, then off to the gate. Board the flight and find my aisle seat. Uneventful flight, sleep some, read some, watch a DVD on my powerbook, etc.

Land at JFK around 4pm, retrieve our bags, clear customs, and off to Manhattan. It's of course cold and raining. We're staying at The Time hotel off of Times Square. Typical NYC hotel room, open the door and hit the bed... But, it's nice enough.

Call my friends Steve and his wife Morgan and we agree to meet for our traditional Indian meal on 6th street. We have been doing this for years now. I take the subway down to Astor Place and walk a couple of blocks down. We pick a new place from the numerous Indian establishments on the street. Turns out to be a good one, the Banana Pakora, vegetable Samosas, and Shrimp Vindaloo are outstanding. Back on the subway uptown to the hotel.
