A nice day for a train journey

Today Tuesday 5 November was a traveling day as we boarded an Amtrak  train for the 6 hour journey from Boston to Philadelphia. The day started off cold and wet but by lunch it was a fine afternoon. The train was comfortable and it was ironic to reflect upon the fact that for all the security being endured as we fly – everyone just walked on to the train with their luggage – no checks – no security – yes – our tickets were scanned once we got rolling but the whole system was all so 1980s – and it felt so good!

One of the great things about our trip so far has been the location of our hotels – the ‘Sleep-Inn Philadelphia’ is in central Philadelphia and when we get walking tomorrow – everything is within easy reach – looking forward to seeing the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall among many other places this stately city has to offer. But we also find ourselves in China Town so of course – it was Chinese for dinner.
