Well Everybody, I haven't even gotten out of the country yet and I'm already going stir crazy. We had a 4 hour flight to JFK and now we have a 5 hour layover in New York.
When we got here, we took the air train the wrong direction and decided to just stay on it until it looped back around. However, it was not a good idea because the line ended in Jamaca Queens. That is where Lisa`s grandparents used to live and I knew I was sooo close to this yummy little place that sells Jamacan Meat Pies and I couldn`t get off the dang train!!!
We had all of our luggage with us, otherwise I totally would have jumped off that train and found that meat pie shop! We had 5 hours, so time wouldn`t have been an issue. However, walking around Jamaca Queens pushing one of those airport carts full of luggage for a month would have definitely caused a few curious looks, I think.
I think the meat pies and the universe are mocking me since this is like the 3rd time I've been within a mile of them and not been able to stop by! Blasted Meat Pies! Blasted!
Think of us while you are all in your comfy beds tonight while we are suspended somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, or over Spain, or the southern tip of Italy, or the south of Greece, or the Mediteranian Sea, or Syria, or Iraq (ok...now deleting my mom from the update list), or Iran or the Persian Sea. Wow!!! This is going to be a long freakin` trip!!! More to come!
