Long day in the big city

My wife had her appointment in Boston. In the end, we did take public transportation in from my daughter's house. Thankfully, she came with us as a guide. Her knowledge of the public transportation system cut our travel time in half. On-line help isn't what it's cracked up to be.

Not a bad ride into the city. We went in the middle of the day, after the morning rush. On the way out, we left during rush hour. I did my impression of a sardine. Picture a whale in a sardine can. The sardines suffered.

We've got to go back at the end of next week. As much as my wife believes in public transportation, she wants me to drive her next time. She's having a hospital procedure done and would rather sit in the car in traffic than struggle through rush hour crowds on the subway. So much for my paying attention on how to make our connections.

Oh well. Looking forward to having it all behind us. One more visit should do it.



  1. I wish her well and you good luck with Boston traffic.

  2. The best view of any city is in the rear view mirror!!

  3. The best view of Boston is in the rear view mirror, even if you are stuck doing 20 MPH going North on I-93 during afternoon rush hour.
