The First Train

Boston, United States

So the time had come to leave the Big Apple (this was after watching a fantastic comeback by the redmen!!) and board the Amtrak to Boston. We mistakenly thought this trip would last about 2 hours, so were a bit shocked by the 4 and a half hour journey. Still couldnt complain though with seats more comfortable than anything ive experienced in public transport and a variety of views, it was a relaxing train ride. As we made our way though conneticut and Rhode Island, you could see the small town feel of real america become more apparent and the arrival of the fall seemed imminent. So on our eventual arrival to Boston we made our way across to our new home for the next 4 nights and were surprised to find it in downtown pretty close to everything, with comfortable beds and a free gift of flipflops!! So after throwing our rucksacks in to the room we set of to explore...the neighbourhood a few blocks away seems to be pretty nice, with shops and restaurants etc. We decided in the end to stop to for a burger before stoppin at a bar for a drink. This little dive bar seemed pretty friendly and the owners wife was from manchester(who i debated footy with later) and had the baseball on. My god longest baseball game of my life - 12 innings until maybe half 12 but being as though it was the red sox and we are in Boston we thought it would be good. Eventually they lost. So I had spent almost 4 hours watching a sport which is kind of glorified rounders, with some drunk american guy talking absolute nonsense to me (and later being kicked out) to watch the red sox lose...hopefully the next game of the playoffs xxx
