I'm in America!!
Well, a youth hostel in Washington DC actually. it's twenty past seven in the morning, and I'm on the internet at one of these pay-as-you-go internet terminals in a youth hostel.
Things are good – I've met up with the Luci, and Sandy and Rodger, and surprisingly Dave Bugg from Warwick. No-ne told me he was going to be here. My phone's not working, despite assurances to the contrary, but other than that, all is well.
Haven't seen much of DC yet, but spent yesterday wandering round NYC. Saw Ground Zero, Chelsea, where the youth hostel people were staying at is, lots of stations and bus terminals, the subway, and we nearly caught the Statten Island ferry, but didn't have time so stared at The Statue of Liberty from shore instead.
At about 17:00, we got the greyhound to Washington, arriving at the Youth hostel where I am now at about 22:45. And I'm really hungry, but they don't do breakfast till 8:00.
Anyway, I'll stop blabbering incoherently, and go do something interesting…
