I visited Hudson River and New York in April, 2010
New York City by night, seen from a boat on the Hudson River, is beautiful. The scyscrapers, the lights, the skyline. For a long time I just stood watching the city, the lights. It was quite a sight.

I visited New York while Eyjafjallajökull erupted in April, 2010
I was at home, packing for our weekend in New York, when my grandmother called to tell me about the volcanic eruption in Iceland. Apparently plane traffic in Europe could come to a complete stop because of it, putting our trip to New York in Jeopardy. Værnes, the airport in Trondheim still wasn’t closed, the airline told us to show up at the airport, no one knew what would happen.
