Sat in a half empty American Airlines plane, listening to Gospel and praying that I’ll make it back to London safely. It’s the end of the beginning. The past 10 days in New York have been nothing short of amazing. Staying in Brooklyn was perhaps the best decision of the whole trip – it helped us embrace the culture and gaze the Manhattan madness from a distance. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the trip when we departed London, the last trip to NYC was amazing but completely touristy. We didn’t even touch BK – the whole ‘OMG it’s so hood and I may come home in a coffin’ thang but it was the complete opposite. Yes, you’ll see the thugged out hoodie-wearing folks but I see that in East London on a regular! More on the reverse.
