As I Have Been So Often Over the Last Week and a Half

I imagined that i would be able to blog about our driving adventure while it was happening, but the truth is that so much is happening every single second of the day. Today i took a day trip to NYC with my niece, Erika Torres (Isabel's daughter) who spontaneously decided to hop in the car with us: i was forced to give up the pump in NJ; accidentally ended up in Newark rather than Jersey City; took the Path from NWK to the World Trade Center; took the subway to Times Square; ate a street vendor hot dog; bought some M&Ms; walked to Columbia circle; played chess in Central Park; walked along Central Park West/South; went into the Apple Store ...

and these are only the 'big' things ... today ... i've left out the quick visit to Lake Erie, the attack of the Canadian Soldiers, visiting Claire Jones in Cleveland, talking with a Jersey trucker, meeting up with Bertie and Ethan Glading ... etc ..

So many stories to tell .. and we're not even out of the NorthEast yet.

Sounds like you have had a great family adventure. Good job! Seems like a tricky thing to pull off, congrats!

Also : I must hear more about the Canadian sneak attack. Never trusted those shifty Canucks.

It was great having the Chavezeses in our house.
