Waiting for the flight went really quickly and getting through customs was fairly easy. I set off the metal detector as I went through and I am still not quite sure how.
The flight was a piece of cake, it took just short of 7 hours, we arrived at 12.15pm (5.15pm British time). I watched Monsters Vs Aliens, some Tv including an odd HBO comedy show called 'East Bound and Down' and the disappointing 'Lesbian Vampire Killers' on the plane.
We caught a taxi ride to our hotel, the New Yorker, in the middle of Manhattan, it caost about $50, so it ain't a particulary cheap way to travel, but it is the quickest and after a 7 hour flight thats what you want
We ended the day by eating at Bubba Gump Shirmp restrauant. The meals were large but tasty and we made a pact that it was absolutly ok to not finish our meals in this country. I think the most off putting things was that they put the calorie content with each meal, my meal (the one with chips) had 1300 calories. Not good.
We ended up crashing at about 9.30pm that night after 21 hours up from the morning before, we were knackered.
