Pilgrim's Regress
It's less than a hundred miles from Astoria to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. We left the former at 1:30pm today. At 3:15pm, we had been driving, if you can call it that, without a break and were still in Brooklyn. Factoring in two short bathroom breaks and a longer thirty-minute one necessitated by an I'm-going-to-hurl-from-all-this-stop-and-go-traffic-flavored-with-inversion-layer-trebled-exhaust crisis, we arrived here six-and-a-half hours later. Needless to say, I've had more pleasant experiences behind the wheel. But Skylar is very happy to be ordering my parents around their hotel room and excited to see the wonders of the Lehigh Valley and the cousin she has yet to meet tomorrow.

Yep. Driving in NYC sucks. Good thing there are so many redeeming qualities.

Driving within any one neighborhood or maybe two isn't usually so bad. But the crosstown traffic would make Hendrix howl.

As the sign when you leave Brooklyn declares. Secular Jesus!

Yikes. I think I would have just given up at some point and gone sight-seeing until . . . oh, midnight or so . . .

Not much to see in a driving, smog-inflected rain, alas. But it's sunny this morning.
