Day 0 26.7.2011 – the prologue
Ok its 10.20pm (or 3.20am UK time), we arrived at Heathrow and all went well from there, the plane was fine even if Steven and Michael both had very little leg room (so we will look into that for the other flights as they are that much longer). Steven was sick on the descent (but credit to him this is his first long haul flight!). We got through immigration nice and easily to be greeted by very hot rain and a welcoming driver at the exit we got in his car and said it would be 85 bucks, we thought ok but to our dismay and horror we ended up paying $220 (I KNOW, CRAZY, OUTRAGEOUS AND WE ARE ALL VERY PI**ED OFF WITH THAT) but are so very tired and that’s the last time we are getting ripped off, so we told the staff at the desk (of the most amazing hotel we have ever seen and been in).....and we get given a FREE upgrade to a bigger room and facing onto Time Square J
So all in all a mixed day filled with excitement, sick, disappointment and tiredness....but hey it’s all an adventure and we are bound to have an eventful time.
Ok so now to see what tomorrow holds and some very welcome sleep........this is me signing off...J
