NYC is fantastic in September!!!
Today 8 years ago I was not there, but in Hamburg driving to several smaller cities in the suburbs doing my field job selling beautiful cards and related stuff. I was at one of my fave customers, had loads to do and was exhausted and not very motivated to go straight on, so I drove home for dinner. At home I turned the radio on. News were thru, but no music, just people talking about that a plane had hit WTC. I thought: no wonder, so much action in the sky over the city...this must happen some day. So I turned back to preparing dinner. Suddenly the girl on the radio started screaming, really shrill and terrified: the other tower was hit by another plane! Then I turned on the TV and remained in front of it for many hours to come. You all know what happened further...!
All general programs were deleted and it was somehow surreal. It was like a film, but it was real.... the newsmen and women did a great job. They were on air without a break, untill they had to resign totally exhausted and somebody else had to take over. I admire them for the great job they made!
Accidently I took part somehow live...what did you do on this bright September Day?!
