Ground Zero visit during the pandemic

I can still remember what I was doing 19 years ago when the first two planes crashed into the World Trade Center. Growing up in the suburb of Manhattan, my father and many other friends’ parents were working in New York City. That morning, my father specifically told us that he has to be in […]

International Travel to the U.S. during COVID.

We received a text message a day before our flight from the airline for our flight from Seoul/Incheon (Korea) to New York to arrive at least two hours before the flight.

Traveling during COVID-19 Episode 2
