It’s been a long day since I got up at 4.00 am Seattle time to make my 7.00 am flight. We left Seattle a little late, and there was light rain in New York City when I arrived, but everything went according to plan. I had dinner with a colleague and then we went for a short walk to Times Square. We also went down to the World Trade Center site. The 9/11 Memorial had already closed, though.
