The next 2 days were spent with family that I haven't seen in years, so I took the opportunity to hang out with them around NYC. Eating some sushi, wandering NY, and eating some ice cream to cool down in the heat wave.
My late flight leaving Honduras to Newark NJ, and lack of sleep started to kick in. Though I was excited to see a friend Donna, that I had met last year, 20,000 feet in the air, on my return trip from China. I call her California/Surfer girl, because she and her best friend, were big into surfing and they were both about to fly into Hawaii to do so. We made plans for the next day to meet up with 2 of her friends and head to Chelsea Pier in New York City. Where we would watch the Macy's July 4th Fireworks on a boat, from what I hear it's quite rare to do this here..
