Live from New York....!

Well, I don't have much time to post since I'm using the business centre computer at the hotel I'm staying in (note to self: bring laptop next time).

Came by train from Montreal yesterday and the trip was long but good. Took almost 12 hours but going through customs was a breeze. That took only about 45 minutes which probably had something to do with there not being very many people on the train. Had two seats to myself and so did my husband. It was coach (no first class on the train) so no luxuries but with a half empty train it was really quiet. Most people were sleeping for a good part of the day.

We're staying at the Marriott which is right at Times Square. It's busy, hectic and fun - part of the street is closed off right in front of the hotel and people are sitting in lawn chairs in the middle of the street.

We made it to The Strand bookstore this morning and then the Guggenheim museum. Tonight we're going to see Mamma Mia (I have to give my husband credit for that since he hates musicals!). Tomorrow I will spend most of the day at the BEA and will try to post about it then. That's it for now...

I'm so glad I got to meet you, even if it was only for a few minutes. We were at the Sheraton right down the street from you. I decided to skip The Strand after I mailed my heavy box.

Avis - thanks! The musical was great!

Hi Staci - I did enjoy it very much. I can't wait to go back.

Bermuda - that was smart of you to mail your box. I didn't in the end, though I intended to, but I just didn't get around to doing it.
