And were Off! - Sabbatical day 9.
After about 5 hours sleep I get up to get ready for my cab to heathrow at 07:45. The cab turns up promptly and I make it to heathrow with plenty of time to spare. So had breakfast at Plane Food which fine if not a little pricey. Spent some money in the Nokia store to get a few bits and bobs.
On the plane I ended up having two seats to myself which is always good. I should really remember to ask for vegan meals in future given my probable lactose intolerance. Although I suspect BA do that as an option anyway.
I watched most of 3 films. Thor was enjoyable. Fast Five was enjoyably ludicrous. Sucker punch was interesting with some great fight scenes although im not that upset I missed the ending due to us landing.
To get to my hotel I decided to take a bus to South Station. The bus was confused though at one point it converted to overhead electrics instead of a normal engine and then it went in its own tunnel like it wanted to be tube. There were no longer bus stops but stations.
Once I got to South Station I got confused and it was raining so I got a cab to my hostel.
My hostel is fine if not a little basic. There is free wifi though.
After attempting a nap I decieded to go on a flaneur and see where I ended up.
I ended up at Fenway Park where I queued for game day tickets for about 2 hours and got in.
So I saw the Red Sox beat the Yankees at Fenway Park from a pretty good seat although it did go to extra an inning so by the time I had walked back to my hostel I had been up for 24 hours. Thankfully caffiene now has an effect on me so the Dr Pepper and Coke I had drunk during the day kept me awake.Flickr set of day 9Originally posted to bob on Dreamwidth. Comment there.

Day 8 of my sabbatical was mostly spent buying stuff to pack and then packing. ( cut for imageCollapse )
Once that was done I set up our network so things would work while I was away.Originally posted to bob on Dreamwidth. Comment there.
