|AMTRAK - PENNSYLVANIA - January 22, 1988
I enjoyed my first experience on Amtrak so much that I was ready to try it again two months later. In January, for my 33rd birthday, I decided to go to Boston and visit my friends Mel and Wendy. (Little did I know that traveling Amtrak would become a birthday tradition.)
The pictures at left are to show you the wintery world I passed through to get to Boston. Most, if not all of the photos are of Pennsylvania, with it's rolling tree-covered hills. Every so often, a small, quaint town would appear, it's rooftops covered with snow as if in a painting. With the train producing its clickity-clack soundtrack, the outside scene took on an aire of charming nostalgia.
Regarding Boston, I am still searching for pictures. It is entirely possible that I lost my mind and didn't take any. (I had a bad case of the flu.) If that is the case, here is what my New England adventure encompassed.
A visit to Providence and tour of Rhode Island. Sightseeing in Boston at Fanial Hall, the Cheers bar, Cambridge, Harvard, the Museum of Fine Arts and Copley Place. During our visit to Fanial Hall, Wendy and I encountered a group of Presidential hopefuls, seeing as there was a televised debate scheduled in a nearby building. Later that night we made our way to a small fine arts theater where I saw the Maltese Falcon for the first time.
On January 28th I started my train trip back home and found myself in Chicago the following day.
