Leaving the USA

Mike and I said goodbye to Fred and Jan in White Post Virginia. They went on to New York and we put our feet up at 'Greenwood' for a couple of days. The arrangement was that we would meet at Heathrow airport for the next leg of our filming trip.
We said 'au revoir' to Winkie and Matthew after they drove us to Dulles Airport, Washington where we boarded a plane for JFK airport, New York. Dulles Airport is quite an amazing piece of design.  The grand sweep of the un-interupted roof is amazing it is also an efficient place to fly from.
Our international connection was from Newark so when we got to JFK we looked at the options. Public transport or taxi for two. Taxi won.

View from the taxi window.

 As a devoted fan of The Sopranos I just have to put in this very ordinary image of  the sign post when we left the New Jersey Turnpike. It is in the great spirit of 'we were here' one of the few tourist moments on this journey!

We had hoped to pick up a sensational Italian meal on the way but it didn't happen. We tumbled onto a plane, closed our eyes and woke up in England.
