Sorry I have been away for awhile. I have been enjoying my last week in New York and tomorrow is the big ‘return home’ flight. We fly at 8:30pm in the evening US time and will arrive 3am. Its only 6,5 hours luckily compared to the 8 hours we did coming here 6 weeks ago. Apparently jet lag is worse when flying from West to East, but at least we will be in the comfort of our home, our cosy bed and all our new memories. There is no place like home, and both my husband and I were ready to head home a week ago I think. I have been ok, just been missing having a comfortable chair to sit on and a firm mattress.Our home has everything we need. Some people don’t have that luxury. The flat we stayed in here in NY didn’t have a sofa or armchair so 6 weeks without one was actually a challenge. On the flip side however, I feel ridiculously weird saying that when unlike the hundreds of homeless people I’ve encountered every day in the city, I am blessed enough to have a roof over my head.
I must say that the saddest thing for me in this NY experience, was exactly that. The homelessness. I gave money to a couple of people and tomorrow we will be donating a coat, some shoes and a couple of t-shirts to whoever is homeless and might need them. We bought a few new things, so it only seems fair to donate those items that we no longer need, to those that would really appreciate it.
Anyhow, I am keeping my fingers crossed for my big flight home tomorrow! I will hopefully be able to get some sleep with minimal anxiety.Have a great evening everyone (or day to those of you on the other side of the globe). 😉
