25/5/08 – The Journey over to NYC

Woke up around 4am (Irish time) got to the airport and checked in. I had breakfast in the caf with mam and dad. Mam was emotional, but I know she’ll be fine! The flight was a  total of 9 long hours. It was roughly 30 *c here when I arrived. Pat (assistant manager) collected me at arrivals and we sped off in his topless couper to Atlantic Beach Club. I was fucking ecstatic, the warm city breeze through my hair, in my nose and in my pores, yellow cabs, dangling traffic lights, many many lanes of traffic, so many colours, shapes , sounds, smells. It’s hard to believe I’m finally here. I am the first of many seasonal workers to arrive, and opening day is tomorrow at the beach club. 300 members will flock to enjoy their private cabanas and beach. I’m nervous but excited, at least I’ll have had a decent nights sleep. x
