Well, Hi there everyone who may be reading this blog. This is the first time that I have ever blogged before, so if it isn't any good I apologize. I guess you just talk about what you are doing. So here goes...
This evening at 6:12 pm I got on a Amtrak train in Amsterdam, New York. I am currently about 20 minutes away from Penn Station in NYC. Once I get to Penn Station, I am going to be taking the Long Island Railroad to Jamaica in Queens and then the AirTrain to JFK airport where my flight leaves at 7am tomorrow morning.
I was thinking about getting a hotel, but I spent a bunch of money today on "Business" attire that is required at the embassy, so I will probably just sleep on the floor at JFK.
We are crossing into Manhattan right now.
From JFK I fly to Toronto, Canada where I get on my flight to Beijing around 3 pm tomorrow. It is a 13 or so hour flight, but I will arrive in Beijing around 4 pm on Wednesday. I will be starting work Thursday morning at 9 am.
Shout out to Chad and Katie and Gary and Bruno and Regina and James. Wouldn't be able to do this without your help. I really appreciate it. Hope harvest goes well this week.
Also shout out to Mom, Dad, Mark, Erica and Sara. You guys are wonderful. Thank you.
Well, almost to Penn Station. I will try to post again maybe tomorrow in Toronto, or when I get to Beijing on Wednesday.
FYI it is a 12 hour time difference between Lexington and Beijing.
