The Subway, April 20, 2012 Daily Reflection

The Boston Subway System

All going in different directions; a little French girl about 3 in her pink shoes and purple tights hiding behind her Mom’s black skirt, a teenage girl bubbly and flirting with her blond boyfriend, an Asian teen sitting on the steps writing on his computer, all squeezed into the subway of Boston. I saw a college chick eat sushi on the subway and was separated by the doors when my husband got off at a stop and the driver shut the doors and took off. We were crammed in barely able to shut the doors was there really a capacity? Definitely not one that people enforce that is for sure! Screeching, brakes, speed, flashing lights, rails, honks, crammed small spaces, different people, and different walks of life all squeezed into the subway.
