Boston MA, 2014-12-14
The whole reason we flew in to Newark was so that we could catch the Amtrak to Boston. We rose early to catch the start of breakfast at our hotel1 and I was bemused by the fact that all the crockery, cutlery, etc was all disposable. Heavy duty cardboard plates, plastic cutlery and drinking cups and foam coffee cups (with the plastic lids, for full takeaway goodness). I guess that's one way to save on cleanup costs, but I can't say it strikes me as particularly environmentally friendly. After breakfast we jumped on to the hotel shuttle back to the airport to wait for the Amtrak.
