So here we sit at JFK airport, waiting for our flight to London (via Frankfurt, on Singapore airlines. Figure that one out. :).

A busy day...the movers came and packed stuff. It didn't seem like we had that much stuff to send to London, but in the end there were 25 boxes of stuff weighing nearly 900 pounds!! It's amazing what can be accumulated in a year's time. We decided that moving every year was a good thing, because of the amount of junk it forces you to throw away. And even when we left, we have a pile of things for the Salvation Army to come pick up on Monday.

It was kind of sad, leaving the apartment, nearly as empty as when we found it. Though better, in some repects. We had installed a light above the kitchen sink, some simple, space saving wine racks under the cupboard above the kitchen counter, and a towel rack in the bathroom. But Lennart and I stood for a moment, hand in hand, gazing one last time at our particular view of the Empire State Building. And then grabbed the suitcases, left the keys with the doorman, caught a cab, and headed to the airport, and here we are.

See you on the other side...
