New York City

Embedded in my trip to the Hamptons Film Festival, I planned two short stays in NYC, too – just to see how it is today (I have only once been in NYC, end of 2006).

The moment I arrived at the Airport, it was like coming home – I even remembered details of the AirTrain (we used this train for a national flight last time), and everything went smoothly.

I travelled to my first NYC-address with public transport, and waited for my host at a typical ’shop’ where you can buy water, deli-kind-of-food (2go or 2stay) and withdraw money (ATM-sign). I was uncovered as European immediately (I wore my Austrian hat), and when I wanted to help myself for an American Coffee, they told me that I must not drink this … but that I should have one of their Cappuchinos instead. I think this was a good recommendation – never tried this US-coffee.

My host, Corina, is a great chap – she spontaneously decided to go to the Blue-Note-Jazz-Club with me on Sunday evening, where Dianne Reeves will perform -> check out her website: http://www.diannereeves.com/

Dianne Reeves also sang the songs in the Clooney-film ‘Good night, and Good luck’, which won a Grammy for its music !
