I survived Amtrak (half hour late due to freight trains.) I survived NJ Rail (30 minutes late due to downed wires + 20 minutes waiting at a bridge by Secaucus for all the backed up trains to pass us into NY.) I survived NJ taxi drivers who couldn't find a building right round the corner even though he told me it was right round the corner when I said I can't walk the two blocks to Mulberry St. I survived the desk clerk who didn't believe I was the person whose name was written on the envelope with the keys in it. I even survived me who managed to lose my wallet inside the bedroom of the apartment and *then* managed to lose (ie not find) half the money that was in the wallet.

It only took 15 hours but I am in New York. Or rather New Jersey. Tell me again why people travel?

And happy birthday, Fearless Leader.
