I’m heading out to NYC for awhile, and definitely plan to snag you some interesting photos if not stories for you guys. In my absence, enjoy this piece in the meantime. I’ve always joked about sticking someone with older-fashioned clothes in a car for a road trip, so I’m glad to finally properly get this illustrated.

Breakfast in Queens is always simple. It’s quite a different change when you’re on the road scrounging McDonalds biscuit and eggs; sometimes my aunt does give something more Guyanese when we arrive, but often breakfast is very simple, composing of bread and cereal.
This was the case here, especially since we were trying to get back home in time for July 4th. Breakfast was very simple; regular bran flakes, milk and coffee. Honestly, I actually enjoyed this before heading out, especially considering this was eaten at 7:30AM. Though I got hungry pretty quickly afterwards.
The first thing that came to mind were the Red Flag stories of “going downtown”, where the populace was SAMs and other aerial threats. That’s exactly what came to mind when I saw this going into New York; this was the first time seeing the big city on a GPS, so it was very enlightening to say the least. If anything, it made me more excited.
