Chapter two : Hawthorne

Today we arrived at Hawthorne, the second chapter of our trip, the work part… Tomorrow I’ll start working at the IBM Watson Research Center together with other the members of W3C’s Forms working group. And try to tackle most of the last call comments of the XForms 1.1 specification.

We took the train from Grand Central Terminal (New York) to Hawthorne because a taxi was a bit more expensive ($165 + tip) compared to the $14.50 (two train tickets) plus the $15 for the cab from the station to the hotel. Taking the train was also much faster, getting in and out Manhattan is hell, it is one big traffic jam…

The last two days were so filled that I didn’t had the chance to blog about it, and therefore I’ll just give you a small résumé. On Sunday we went to the UN headquarter, the Puerto Rican parade, walked through Central Park (starting at Central Park South to Central Park North). On Monday we took the subway downtown and vested Little Italy, China Town, Brooklyn Bridge, the financial district (including Ground Zero), Staten Island Ferry… Today we went back to the UN headquarter to take a guided tour inside and visited the New York Public Library.

Hi Nick,

It's nice to see what you guys are up to. Looks like an "OK" trip, judging from the pics ;-)

take care
