We (the New York City labor chorus and a few hangers on like me) arrived in London's Heathrow Airpoprt this morning (Tues.) and almost immediately were taken by bus to Cardiff and the University of Wales in Cardiff, where we are staying for the next three days (Wed., Thurs., and Fri.) On Friday we will we will head for Swansea, where we will stay until we return to London (Heathrow) for the flight home.
The flight from JFK (in NYC) to London was uneventful (that's the way I like airplane trips to be). But I'm convinced that American Airlines is giving each customer less space. They offered us chicken or meat lasagna, but we declined. We had had sandwiches in the airport before we left. In addition to the Chorus There was a large contingent of Hassidic Jews on the plane and a smattering of families as well. It was pretty full.
Wales (Cardiff) is beautiful. That's all for now, we have to be up and on the bus at 8:30am tomorrow (Wed.). More later.
