San Antonio, Texas

Arrived in SA Sunday evening after a long journey and very little sleep…

I left Sheffield at 4.45am (having only had three hours sleep) to get to Manchester airport for an early check in. I flew from Manchester to Newark, NY and then took a second flight on to San Antonio, Texas. Despite a small delay I landed about 6pm CST (Central Standard Time). Texas is six hours behind the UK, so my body clock was telling me loud and clear it was past midnight. Fortunately having taken the internal flight, I’d already done customs so it wasn’t long before I’d got my luggage and I was on my way to where I was staying. I managed to stay awake for a few more hours with the hope that if I did so I could slip easily in to the new time zone. 

Luckily for me I’ve been able to take the last couple of days to aclimatise and was pleasantly surprised to find that cloudy starts to the day soon become glorious sunny afternoons. However warmer climes often come with a catch and since finding out that here in San Antonio there are black widow spiders, scorpions and rattle snakes, I shall be keeping a close eye open for anything that moves!
