Hi All, The meet went very well. I believe that the "good guy" message got through because the first thing Frank did was to give me a hug. Not only that, but Frank also treated me to a welcome drink. It was all uphill from there. The conversation was interesting and participatory - with a rib here and there between Joe(really interesting)Nation, Frank, and Tzar. I asked which show they would recommend, and The Mormons was suggested. I was thinking of doing the 9/11 Memorial, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and top it off with a show, but by the time finished at the 9/11 Memorial and the walked to the Met from 57th Street to 82nd Street and walking inside it, my 79 year old body told me to call it a day.
I had dinner at a Zagat rated restaurant in the neighborhood, and returned to my room. It's now past 9pm, so I'm going to finish packing for my trip home.
The cruise from Copenhagen to Norway to Iceland to Scotland to Ireland to Canada and finally to NYC in 17 days were educational, rewarding and worth the big dent to my cash balance.
So, until next time.
