Countries look so different from the air. England is a rolling patchwork quilt of fields in different shades of yellow, green and brown. Spain is spotty with its many olive tree orchards. Around New York it is surprisingly wooded. Leafy suburbia is just that, there must be at least ten trees to every house.
I felt very excited, despite the jet lag. Getting to my hostel was actually quite fun. I took the bus to Brooklyn, then the metro. I got off the bus a little early and walked along New Lots Avenue
The hostel I'm staying at is fairly new and slightly trendy. I sat with a few other girls at dinner (free BBQ in the garden). One of them was a Maths and Philosophy student from London. I liked how easy it felt to chat to them.
Breakfast this morning was really good. I ate three jelly and peanut butter sandwiches and some American pancakes for the spirit of the thing. Off to explore now before heading over to long island later. Excited!
