Live blogging from amtrak!
This weekend marks two big occasions: my first 30-day metro card has expired and I am taking my first out-of-NY (actually, just out of my borough even) adventure to Boston! I decided to take amtrak instead of the buses so that I could experience the wonder of amtrak trains. And so far, it’s been pretty nice! They have wifi and plugs and I am charging my phone as I type.
Hour 1 update: I think some people missed their stop and are now waiting for the next one… It makes me scared to go to sleep in case I miss mine. Eep! I’m also super thirsty from the chips I had and am trying to work up the guts to venture forth and find the car with the snacks and drinks in it. I keep seeing people walk back with drinks and I want one. Curse my cowardice in exploring.
On a side note, I need to stop eating sweets and snacks… I was so hungry yesterday I ate almost half a box of wheat thins (ranch flavored, of course) and three blondies. I woke up with puffy face. Consequences…
