Hello. I am in New York. Got in last night then made way to hotel. Is very nice hotel, 791_43 chose well. I am suffering a bit from the tired, though. By the time I got to bed it was midnight EDT, and I am not sure if I really slept. This morning I went to Staten Island and back. A lot of people do this apparently: enough that there is a multimedia presentation at the ferry terminal explaining why you shouldn't just hop on the return ferry... On the ferry back I met someone who knew someone from Cotesbach... (!)

After this I wandered around the financial district a bit. The financial district is actually surprisingly tiny: I wonder if it or the City of London are geographically larger. Interesting to see how the grid system more or less just vanishes in downtown, it being the eldest settled area.

After this I made my way back to the hotel, where I have bought wifi access and am going to rest for a bit before heading out again somewhere. Maybe Central Park.

Tomorrow I am meeting 791_43 at Penn station, who will have travelled 30 hour on a train...
