Tourist, trapped

Tourist, trapped

Originally uploaded by One2KnitFar

Sometimes the best plans  go awry.  Yesterday I traveled by dinghy, boston whaler, commuter train and taxi to catch an AMTRAK train to NYC.  I was doing fine until the train sat two hours outside Stamford, CT.  Then they announced we would be there indefinitely because of wires on the tracks.

We had 5 minutes to decide if we wanted to leave the train because they were going to pull up to a platform briefly.  Passengers were irate, some were crying and yelling.

I made 3 friends after we shared a cab to NYC.  Two guys from the UK were Iron Maiden groupies in NY for a concert and a woman from NY is about to release her first record album.  We laughed and traded stories and email addresses and then parted on 42 St.
