I don't have a link!

Hello my dear readers, I am back!

Our trip to Boston was amazing and we had so much fun. Seriously, we did!

From some past posts I’ve written have been about my experiences on getting lost in new and big places. Guess what guys?! This is another one of those posts but this time I, I mean we, got lost in Boston.

Sunday, our parents agreed to let Laura, the triplets and I take the subway to downtown Boston to do some shopping. Alone. Please keep in mind that where we live, we have no subway or any form of under ground transportation. For public transportation here, we use busses which go around and around the city. It’s a pretty simple system but the Boston subway system -also known as the “T”– is quite different and complex from what we are used to.

With the help of a near-by security guard, we managed to but our T train tickets through this ticket machine.. thing. Once you have your ticket, you’re supposed to put it in the hole, take it back out and walk through the doors once your ticket has been read. I tried it differently. Because I had already bought my ticket, I thought the next step was to just walk to the doors and they would automatically open up like the ones at the grocery store but nope, that’s not how it works.

Is this yours? Let me know!

After watching someone experienced do it, I soon figured it out which held back the line behind me. There are some pretty impatient people in Boston.

Luckily we got on the right train but it was really, really, really, busy so we were scattered all over the place. Kara and Jono got two seats, Laura and I were squished against the walls on opposite ends and I really have no idea where Chloe ended up. The train stopped at one stop and Laura half told me, half yelled over the people that this was where we get off so what do I do? I listen to my sister and I get off the train of course.

The next thing I know is I’m standing in the train station while Laura and the trips continue to ride the train to the next station.

My next move is to call Laura on her cell but I remembered her telling me in the hotel room before we left that “she forgot to charge it so it’s out of juice” and the triplets don’t have cellphones yet. The next best thing to do is to ask for directions but I am the WORST with that. I got Cam and I shipped off an hour away one time when we first started talking the city bus across town.

No link!

I decided to just wait for the next train to come and try to spot out one of my siblings. Good plan Olivia because eventually, I located Chloe who was just sitting on the train alone without Laura or Jono or Kara. I got on with her and she said “Everyone just left without telling me. It made me sad”. Hahaha, that really made me laugh.

So, we decided to stay on the train and keep going around and around Boston. Nothing else we could do, right? After a little while, I noticed Laura standing at one of the stations. She got on the train but Kara and Jono weren’t with her.

Now to end this very long and over-detailed post, we ended up finding Kara and Jono in the train car next to us.

School tomorrow, ew! But I get to see Devin! I missed him :)
