Boltbus with no frills

Our $17.50 (each) bus was 20 minutes late getting under way. There was no free bottled water. We were greeted by a sign that said "Internet not working -- Boltbus apologizes". Not exactly an auspicious start. Oh, and did I mention I was sitting in a seat with a 300-pound woman who spent most of the trip talking on her cell phone?

The trip was actually fine. The driver made up the lost 20 minutes. My seat mate never took up more than 2/3 of the seat. And my tuna sandwich from home was comforting, especially since there were no stops.

We are now enjoying our daughter's spacious apartment in Washington Heights. She is out to the farmers' market to get a few things for dinner.

So far the only thing I forgot to pack was my camera cable. At least I can still connect my iPhone. Electronic challenges!

I'm excited to read about your adventure! I'm sure you can find a replacement camera cable (or card reader, if it was the cable to transfer the pics) in NYC, home of a multitude of electronics shops. I'm sure you'll leave that to David. :)

My mom was born in Washington Heights. I've walked around there a few times--it's really pretty. Enjoy!

PS Have you visited The Cloisters? (http://www.metmuseum.org/works_of_art/the_cloisters). I recommend it if you have time.

I'm sorry about the start but it sounds like all turned out well! (I'm actually a huge fan of Bolt, but it really, really helps when the plugs and wifi are working.)

Can't wait to hear more about the trip!

I second the comment about The Cloisters. Go if you can!

I can't imagine Bolt Bus without Internet! That was my favorite part of using Bolt!
