All I can say… Wow!
This week has been unreal. First I woke up to snow on Sunday morning in Denver, Colorado. Sunday was crazy fun traveling from the 32 degree june snow covered winter park to the 103 degree Greenville, NC. I had one day to turn around my stuff and get it ready for my 5 week NYC Tribecca Adventure. I stayed up all night on Monday and got everything ready. I went to bed at 4:45am and got up at 5am to get ready to leave for Raleigh. I met some of my Campus Track friends at RDU for the Delta flight up to NYC. The flight was SHORT! NC State’s women’s basketball coach Kay Yow was sitting behind me with her assistant. They were headed up here for some media related work with Clear-channel. The gate we arrived at was in this random part of Laguardia… lets just say it enveloped tarmac and transit bus.
We arrived at our Destination in Queens. We are staying at the New York Center for Urban Ministry… The 100 degree temperatures plus lack of Air Conditioning made the second part of yesterday very unpleasant. I did have the opportunity to eat at some great local restaurants throughout the day. Late last night a fellow campus team member and a staff member and I took the Subway into Time Square! It was in the middle of a summer lightening storm. Very stunning seeing the beauty of the lightening upstaging the crazy brightness of Times Squares brightest advertisements. Amazing how God can shine through right?
I went to bed in a room that was almost 95 degrees… not a good combo. It is humbling for me though, because there are homeless people in NYC who were sleeping in the same temp with no shelter or bed.
I have a v-blog that is coming up later tonight… stay tuned for that!
