Be it that I am currently a Florida resident for me to stay in New York I need my friends to allow me to stay with them. On this trip to New York I am being hosted by my longtime friends Lenny and Lauren on the beach in Long Beach on Long Island. I have been here since late July and plan on staying until right after Labor Day then go back to Florida. When I got back to New York this time my friend Howie got us on a helicopter over NY. He has a friend who rents out his Helicopter hanger to NYONair, the best open door helicopter company in New York. This was my fourth time taking a ride above NYC, it never disappoints.

I have done some light traveling this summer in the USA as I mentioned in my last post, hitting Seattle and San Francisco. I went to Seattle with my nephew for a week. We took a tour of the Boeing Factory but unfortunately you are not allowed to take any photos at the factory which was pretty cool to go see. We also went to Mount Ranier which I highly recommend for anyone heading to Seattle, great day trip. Seattle has great food, some nice architecture and unfortunately a big homeless problem to deal with. It is also a big sports town. We went to see a Mariners game and my nephew went to a soccer game there too. The two stadiums are side by side which does work well for the city layout.

I stayed on Hayes Street in San Francisco at my friend Alberto’s apartment. He is one of my Spaniard friends I met in Remote Year last year. He is friends with so many other Spanish people who also live and work in San Fran, it was like little Spain. There was also six other Remote Year friends that live there so it was great to catch up with all of them, first time I have seen most of them since December. Had the opportunity to walk around San Fran a lot by myself. This town is not easy to walk, it is hilly and everything seems much further away. Went to the pier and had In-n-Out Burger which was very good this time, the other time in LA wasn’t a big deal to me. The Painted Ladies houses and park area was a really sweet area to hang around, getting to Coit Tower was not so easy but absolutely worth the view, I also walked on the beaches there for different views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The weather was just as expected, cold, hot, warm and who the hell knows.

I do have further plans for travel. In September I am supposed to go to Bolivia for two weeks to visit a “friend”, then hit up ACL in Austin, (Austin City Limits music Festival) for the second week of October. There I will be meeting up with we expect about 20 people from Remote Year that I traveled with last year. There might be more travels planned for early next year but we can talk next time about that.
