Bismillah. In NY for the first time, Praise God, for discussions at Google Ideas & the CFR on countering religious & racist extremism.

Amazing city! Sobering to realise that 9/11 happened here. Similarities, differences and affinity between here and our beloved London are interesting.

Took the subway from JFK to Manhattan. There was a passenger reciting a rap loudly to himself all the way! Even the subway announcer sounded as though he was rapping. I keep thinking I’m in a movie, and that something action-packed & spectacular is going to happen at any time. Everyone here talks like those people in the movies. 😉

From the hotel windows, I can see a river (the Hudson?), the Empire State Building, Orion and Sirius.

Peace. 🙂
