I am not one to bash food based on high standards of quality. But food on Amtrak is really unjustifiably expensive. I will endeavor to bring a whole bag full of my own for the next extremely long leg of my trip. Access to cheap and healthy food will make me a much happier traveler. Also large quantities of water, as the on-board water is gross and dehydration gives me headaches.
I safely and expeditiously arrived in Denver, though, and today am attending my high school friend’s wedding. More thoughts on the craziness of this phenomenon at a later time. And tomorrow, the long journey back to New England begins. Perhaps I will see you there.
