I spent the week with Aurelia & her family just chilling and catching up.We had a BBQ at Linda, Mark's mom's house over the weekend and had great steaks on the braai & a great salad that Linda made.She has a nice garden that the kids run a mock in and ride on their battery operated jeep and can just have a great time.The one night we went to watch a movie with the kids - the Dr Seuss movie - really quite cute!!Anyway, on Thursday Lisa called me and said she was going to Boston for the weekend on business and I should come up and stay in her hotel and visit Boston.WOW!!!I had kinda given up on going up to Boston, because I didn't know anyone there, and my funds are drying up so didn't want to fork out $$$ for accommodation, but I couldn't refuse the offer to stay at Lisa's hotel.So, I looked into a couple of train options and started working on my itinerary!!I booked a 15 day Amtrak rail pass for $299.00 and had a reservation from Trenton to Boston for Saturday afternoon.From there I planned to head down to New York city for a week, where I booked in at the Hostel International www.hihostels.com for a reasonable $32.00 per night!!!Then from there down to Washington DC the Capital city where I was going to stay with Becca & her husband, whom I met when I was staying with Christine in SFO, and she insisted that I have to come and visit when I get to the East coast.Then I planned a quick trip back up north to upstate New York to Saratoga Springs to visit Martha a friend I made on my Trek America tour!!!Fantastic 2 weeks ahead of me.
