That is good to hear about New York, it is my favorite city outside India -
I have not been to USA since 2002, because I did not enjoy the mindless
security procedures I was put through at that time, especially as I had held
a US visa for 20 years before that, and traveled into the country dozens of
times. My visa has just expired, and I am debating whether I should renew it
at all....
