Looking back to some of my travel photo archives before I went digital in 2006,
I managed to get some travel negatives put on to a CD disc and the images
seem to have held up well.
These pictures were just a few of many that I took on my U.S trips between
2000 and 2006.
And it was while I was staying in New York that I jumped on a Greyhound Bus
at Penn Station and took the four hour trip to Boston.
Of course I miss the travelling after my big scare with the big 'C' in 2013. But then
if the opportunity rose to travel today, I'm not sure I would, now that we have a
potential global threat with the CORONAVIRUS.
And looking around online I see that many leisure travellers are still hopping
around the world without a care. To them the virus is an inconvenience.
Wouldn't it be better for these people to just stay at home until the whole thing
goes away, if it does.
Apparently the authorities in Boston are trying to tackle the virus problem
before their City's Boston Marathon coming up next month. Many of
us saw the pictures this last weekend of the half empty streets during
Sunday's Tokyo Marathon.
THE BOSTON HERALD
I remember spending a few hours late in the day, roaming around the Boston
Harbour and River before jumping back on the Greyhound Bus for that
four hour journey back to New York.

THE INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPER ONLINE
Apparently the latest figure of confirmed U.K. coronavirus
cases is up to 5,683. And we're reading that things will get
a lot worse.
And as we're being encouraged not to go out
unnecessarily, it is slightly putting me off visiting
all the places around town that I had planned to
visit, places like Galleries and Museums.
