Lecture Tour Day 1: London to Ithaca, NY
Up at 5 AM for a taxi at 7 for a plane at 9:30. The taxi was 20 minutes late because the driver couldn't find my house. Fortunately I always leave myself a lot of time for these things. So, flights 1, 2 and 3 are London to Washington Dulles, to New York La Guardia, to Ithaca, New York where Cornell University is, the first stop on my trip. The aerial view of New York state from the little plane to Ithaca was great -- forested hills with patches cut out of them to be farm fields. But I was pretty exhausted by the time I got there. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture.
