3 | Los Angeles to New York
New York, New York! We packed up super early this morning (the sun doesn't even peek it's head up until 7am) and left Los Angeles. A 5 hour plane trip felt a whole lot easier than the 14 hour one from Monday, but it's mind boggling to think that we flew 2500 miles today (over 4000 kilometres!) to get to the other side of the country. We had beautiful views of Arizona and New Mexico, complete with snow capped mountain ranges and also dried out desert peaks that looked like shepherds pie from our birds eye view. The east coast sunset was like something out of The Lion King, a flaming orange sun that sunk into the water in just moments. It was dark already by the time we touched down in New York, and flying into the airport the lights of the city are the sparkliest thing I've ever seen. I think we're going to like it here just fine.
