We didn’t get a phone call during the night so we went down for breakfast and asked for information at the desk. As it turned out, we would leave tomorrow morning. Great, that meant we have another day in New York. During breakfast we decided to try to meet Belinda, and old friend from the time when we lived in Berlin. As it turned out, she only had something planned in the evening, so we hopped onto public transport and arrived Β at her place around noon.

We decided to have breakfast, and from the last time we met I remember that there was ‘Tom Dinner’ nearby, so we used the chance to have breakfast there. The special thing about Tom’s Diner is that Susan Vega made a song about it.

I really enjoyed it here, large coffees and eggs, really nice. After breakfast we walked around Belindas neighbourhood a bit and then went back to her flat.

Since I didn’t know when we would arrive in Berlin, we decided to go to the Australian Consulate in N.Y. so I could vote. Around four PM we said good bye to Belinda and hopped onto the subway. Well, Belinda walked with us and told us which direction and how far we had to remain on the subway. We arrived at Central Station in time, so there was still time to spare before the consulate would close.

When I arrived I was surprised that there was a line up.

After half an hour or so my duty was fulfilled and we walked to the Times Square… actually we walked to the M&M shop to buy some gifts, i.e. personalised M&M’s. Below is Sigrid selecting the colour and pressing the print button, technic pure J

At night we got the new flight schedule and we let Klaus know that we will be late

We arrived at the airport 3.5h before the scheduled flight and found a long queue but the airline counter was still closed, so we joined the queue and I started to get comfy since nothing had changed in the last 30min.

It turned out that the flight schedule had been altered again but nobody bothered to let us know. The flight would start two hours later. In the end it did and we really left the ground this time πŸ™‚
