New York on Wednesday

Skipped the breakfast, almost...
Had a gorgeous take-away cupcake & peppermint tea
on the way

Magnolia Bakery
1240 Ave of the Americas
"Cupcakes make people happy!"
The day was much cooler today, app. 18C
Walked to Columbus Circle
and had a look at Time Warner Center
View from Time Warner Center to Columbus Circle

The famous blue door of Perse
- didn't have chance to enter,
maybe next time...
Perse has been chocen as the best restaurant in New York
by Zagat
The chef Thomas Keller has also French Laundry in Napa
Before lunch made some shopping at Bloomingdales
- 2 pairs of black flipflops
Lunch at Forty Carrots at Bloomigdales

Crab meat salad
- delicious "light" lunch - huge portion
Fresh healthy meals
Lots of elderly ladies having their lunch there
Rating: 4/5
Had booked a private car by the hotel
to take to the JFK at 3.30pm
- journey took app.1h
Had some problems at the airport in terminal 7:
wanted to check-in at a counter,
but a BA employee didn't let
- said that the check-in must be done by a machine,
but it wasn't possible because of the connection flight
- this real pain-in-the-arse middle-aged lady
kept on telling to check-in by the machine
until another BA person told her that in this case
it was not possible to check-in there
- the check-in lady at the counter was very kind & helpful
The flight to London was supposed to leave at 7.05pm,
but because of a no-show
- had checked-in the luggage but didn't make it to the flight
all the suitcases had to be taken out of plane to find that.
The departure was 1,10h delayed.
Had a window seat without anyone sitting next to
- luxury!
Watched "Marley & me"
and slept a couple of hours.
Already at 1am came the breakfast,
the flight took only 6h.
At 2am the plane landed and it was already 7am in London...
