The Liberty Bell, the midnight train and some little ghost town called baltimore.

Baltimore, United States

Think I will round up Philly for you first, I mean its not that it was horrendous but the two main tourist attractions the Libverty Bell and Independence Hall really did suck! And trying to charge us 20$ cover to watch England you must be kidding. So we packed ourselves up and looked forward to moving on to Baltimore...how wrong we were. The useless people at Amtrak had given us tickets for competely different trains...subsequently I had already missed my midnight train and Sunil was forced to miss his midday train to try and sort my ticket out. We managed to leave Philly an hour later than planned but I think if he had of known just what Baltimore was like we would have stayed longer! There is not much to say about here, I mean its just a ghost town, other than the harbour, there is no shops, nowhere to eat and generally no people! Its kind of freaky in that respect, I half expect to see tumbleweed rolling down the road! And to top it off there is a group of kids in our hostel that are frustratingly typically American, making it difficult to even relax at the hostel when there is nowhere to go...and with it being Columbus day today I just cant see it getting any better. All I can say is bring on DC tomorrow, I need some civilisation!!
