Christmas Day 2005 and it is time to board my first flight on my RTW trip. Check my passport, luggage lock and on to the flight counter for a long flight Melbourne to New York via LAX. I managed to watch a few movies before falling asleep for the night. A pretty peaceful flight overall and then a mad dash through LAX, I have 1 1/2 hours to make my connection to New York. Chistrmas day starts again as I now do it New York style. After a quick airtrain ride I am in downtown. I found the information counter girl quiet rude, I was lost in a big city with lots of trains to choose from. I finally decide to visit some of the shops after leaving Penn Station, liberty will have to wait for another visit. After an overnight stay at a local hotel it is back to the airport to head to Canada.
