Arriving in style

a first class breakfast, flying into BA on AAHappiness is flying first class courtesy of a boatload (uh plane-load?) of FF miles. Here is breakfast, with all the accoutrements. I opted to sleep in my three-window pod rather than have the five-course dinner at 10.15pm out of JFK (though was sorry to miss the hot fudge sundae).

Got the keys to my loft for the month and, feeling good, hit the sidewalks on a warm sunny early afternoon. Decided to stay within walking distance, so checked out the Botanical Garden. Nothing to sneeze at, it was established in 1898 and later eclared a National Monument. This winter-house is the only one in Art Nouveau style still conserved in the world.
