You probably clicked on to this link expecting to see some photos of the Parthenon -- well, not quite yet. ( :
JFK Airport was closed this afternoon for a couple hours because of a thunderstorm, so our flight into New York was diverted to Philadelphia. We were on the plane 3 hours longer than expected (ugh), with no meal (budget cuts). When we finally did arrive in NY, we got off a plane full of irritable travellers and walked into a whole airport full of them. Every hotel within an hour was booked, of course, so we're spending the night in the terminal (have you seen the Tom Hanks' film "The Terminal"? Well, at least we found free wireless internet!
There are 2 flights to Athens tomorrow -- one around 2 PM and one at 5:40 PM. We're hoping we can get on one of them.
Meanwhile, we may try to go out and walk around New York a bit tomorrow morning, if possible. I would like to go see the World Trade Center site and the Orthodox church near it that ministered to the victims.
Please pray for us! This long trip has turned out even longer than expected!
