We have been in New York City for week, and all in our group are pleasantly surprised by how friendly and helpful people are here. One of our traveling companions is a former detective in our police department back home, who admitted that he was expecting violence and mayhem on every corner. His Grade 12 daughter left her purse in a cab on their way to the symphony, and she managed to get it back the same evening because the next passenger turned it in. People in the long wait for the Macy’s parade saved one another’s spots for snack and bathroom breaks. People accommodated small, short children so they could better see the parade. It has been refreshing.
