San Diego by Amtrak

Now in San Diego, next to the Mexican border. I travelled by Amtrak – always wanted to see what that was like. It was like a plane flight, reclining seats on the upper level, with wine and snack served. And just like the movies – a conductor clipped everyone’s ticket and stuck it in a little clip above one’s seat.

I love finding out the differences in different countries. Catching the train was weird in itself. Passengers had to line up in front of Gate E, which was a gate to nowhere, just lobby on either side. Then an Amtrak official came along and told us Track 11 and weall hurried along a cavernous hall until we reached platform 11.

Seems like lotus eating land at the moment – I haven’t done anything that could be called work yet. That starts tomorrow evening. Until then, I’ll just enjoy!
