Our 2009 Other Sheep Asia Trip

Returning Home to New York City

  • Finally, home -- here in the Bronx,
    New York, September 7, 2009, for
    Jose, September 8, 2009, for Steve.
Our flight from Bangkok departed around
1:00AM, August 30, 2009.  We had a lay
over and a connecting flight in Beijing,
China.  (We had breakfast and did work
on our laptops.)  We arrived at the JFK
International airport, New York City,
around 2:00PM the same day - August
30th.  Our travel time, including layover,
exceeded 25 hours and when we arrived
in NYC we still had about 10 hours
remaining before midnight, August 30th.  
Beginning June 26, 2009, through August
30, 2009, we had flown around the world.
(More in arches - toward the north arctic
region, rather than circling the world as
generally thougt - so, I'm not sure if it
counts! - anyway, that's not how the 16th
-17th century explorers did it - ask Henry
Hudson, it doesn't work to sail northwest -
which reminds me - we did fly over the
Henry Hudson Bay)

Re-entry into the USA through customs -
Jose and Steve are potentially
separated.  Thanks to DOMA and Jose's
common name which eschews his

New York City!  It is dusk and the picture is looking eastward (not westward).  
There is a red glow in the east from the sun setting in the west.  This is the

Orchard Beach, Bronx, looking out toward Long
Island Sound
