I reached New York!

Today I had a quite long day, got to New York at 7:30 a.m. after an 11:30 red-eye. I was exhausted (I probably slept for three hours, after losing my iPod in the dark of the unlighted ground, I started having a panic attack, so I took a relaxing pill THANKS so so much mom, it helped me sleep). Tomorrow is an even longer day (which really doesn't end until Friday). All 10 of the kids going to Turkey are leaving together at 6 from the hotel for our 9:30 p.m. flight to Frankfurt (which is 8 hours). After that, we have a 2 hour lay-over which barely lets us run through Frankfurt, get food and re-board. We get to Turkey later that day and barely get a chance to shower before starting orientations about Turkey. Hopefully those are more interesting than what we did today (a boring reading of AFS rules and regulations, which I fell asleep in and almost fell onto my neighbor and travel tips for our long haul tomorrow) - Gule Gule
