Marty went into the souvenir shop and bought two hats and two pairs of sun glasses.

“Here said Marty put these on right away and keep them on.”

“Even on the plane?

“Yes we do not want anyone recognising us do we?

“I see said Pat.

Marty had words with the airport manager who made sure the got on the plane first then would inform them at the terminal in New York to make sure they got through customs without any one seeing them.

In the first class compartment a curtain was pulled around them for privacy and the stewards informed not to let anyone see them getting on or off the plane.

The ten hour flight would mean that they would need the toilet at some point but they had to ask and they were escorted there and back.

They had to eat all their meals behind a curtain too; they could look out of the window until it got dark and the seats went back so they were able to sleep.

They woke up some four hours later knowing they were now crossing the Atlantic Ocean.


When the plane eventually landed they were taken straight off and taken to customs.

“How long will you be staying in America sir?

“About a month.”

“Are you here on business or pleasure?

“Pleasure sir.”

“Where is your luggage?

“We planned to buy all our clothes here in New York; so we only brought toiletries.”

“Okay you can go through, have a nice day mam said the security guard.

“Thank you replied Pat.

We have to find a hotel and get some money changed. They found a guest house which was only five dollars per night which included breakfast. They paid for a week then went out to buy clean clothes that would see them until the rest of their money went into the account. He had £47.00 in the account but told the manager that a considerable amount would be transferred into the account in two days time.

The manager asked if they required money until the transfer was made. Can I have the forty seven pounds exchanged?

They got $470 dollars more than enough to buy some clothes with.

 After buying some clothes; they went back to the guest house and changed after taking a shower. Then they went out to a café recommended by the house owner that sold good food at a reasonable price.

Benny’s bar was on 5th Avenue; they walked in and sat at the table where there was a menu.

“We have to try the burgers here Pat said Marty.”
