RE: New York City
I got about an inch of snow.

And, regarding the subway, that's just New York Confused

And a question about your performance:
You [did|were going to] play the voila, correct?

Yes, I played the viola onstage. It was alot of fun-I got to chat with some of the performers in the backstage area. Surprisingly, most performers were from California.

Speaking of the subway, I doubt that the station or the subway cars have ever been cleaned. Pieces of gum and dried phlegm are stuck to the floor of the station; vagrants with shopping carts live inside of the subway cars. Also, the subway fare is ridiculous-$2.50 to $3 for a one-way ticket. In Taiwan, the subway stations/cars are cleaned daily, the subway cars aren't even close to being as loud of NYC's subway cars, vagrants don't live in subway cars, and a one way ticket costs $1. Of course, its subway cars move alot faster and aren't that loud (and they're about 40 years old!)

I liked the Boston subway system. Clean, no urine on the trains or the platforms, and fast. Price-wise, for $19 you can get "Unlimited travel on Subway, Local Bus, Inner Harbor Ferry, and Commuter Rail Zone 1A" for a week.

Huge shame your fight was cancelled. However at least you get to enjoy the snow. As per public transport, Sheffield is unreliable, clean when it feels like it and complicated. But at least its cheap, an all day south Yorkshire pass costs £6.50 (about $10)

RE: New York City
It's hard to enjoy the snow in -10 degree Fahrenheit weather (wind chill factored in) with gusts up to 50 MPH....

It's like Antarctica up here....

Same here, the temperature was about -10 degrees Fahrenheit. My mother forbade us from visiting Central Park (too dangerous), so we visited the Metropolitan museum. My brother got lost in a reconstructed Egyptian temple for about three hours. Tongue The exhibits were quite interesting, so I took about 500 photos. Unfortunately, my mother's phone ran out of battery, and I couldn't take any more pictures. Lunch that was bought in the museum (a plate of pasta) cost $13. We had dinner at Baohaus (a Taiwanese-cuisine restaurant that serves Kwapau, a type of food that resembles a sandwich). Oddly enough, the restaurant played heavy metal.

RE: New York City
You're better off. In NYC, it's -5 degrees F but feels like -30 degrees .

I'm leaving for SAN via JFK (no stopovers.) I believe that this is also AA.

Flight is delayed for an hour and twenty minutes. Last time (SAN-ORD), the plane arrived in ORD an hour late (took six hours.)
