After my time at the Queens Library came to an end, I treated myself to an extra week in New York, so that I could really explore the city. And my enthusiasm for it remains! One of my colleagues in Queens remarked, “Bernd, each week you’re becoming more of a New Yorker.” There’s a certain amount of truth to that. ;)))
So now I can in all honesty recommend a visit to the city to everyone.
Oh yes, and I was also in Washington and Baltimore.
I returned to Germany on July 26, experiencing the same delays I encountered on the flight to New York (somehow British Airways and I are always at odds).
I was on vacation until August 15, and now I’m back at my library again. Everything here has run smoothly in the interim, thanks to my hard-working colleagues!
