New York 2010

While the rest of Britain did battle with the snow my daughter, Anna, and I were in New York.
Fortunately we had seen the forecast and booked into a hotel at Heathrow on Tuesday evening as we would not have got out of the drive on Wednesday morning! Extra security at the boarding gate meant we were 45 minutes late taking off but better safe than sorry.
Beautiful view of the Welsh coast as we flew over it.

Getting through passport control at JFK took over an hour including all ten finger prints and a retinal scan. Even with the 5 hour time change it was still dark as we arrived in New York, lovely way to see it for the first time with all of the bridges and main buildings lit up.
Good hotel, just far enough away from the crowds but near enough to Times Square to have a good view of it from our room (right).
