Making a Landing

Can you land at La Guardia with twenty-one people, each with two or three pieces of luggage, and all take the same city bus across town to where you are staying? If you're a Wally you can, and we did. Is it possible for two professors, twice their age of their students, to hang with them til 4 am listening to an incredible jazz trumpet player Maurice Brown and his mixed style band... you bet!!! We did and we loved it! Finally, is it possible to get this same group of 18 students up, out the door, and on the subway train to the heart of Harlem less than 8 hours later? Done.
