Yesterday I dropped off Ananda in Haverford at her school after winter break. Because it was so cold and my trusty old Astro Van’s heater doesn’t work so well anymore, I decided to get a rental car on the way at the Hartsford-Springfield International Airport in Bradley Conncticut. Though I made reservations online the day before, Enterprise car rental was not able to supply us with a car. We got one at Budget a couple of blocks down the street even without a reservation and a fine one it was. The Chrysler 300 was all we were hoping for. Not only was it absolutly stylish but it felt like it was glued to the road and it was a great joy to drive.
We arrived in Haverford at 3:00 PM and unloaded the car. Then we went grocery shopping at Whole Foods and took a tour through the Haverford College campus. I noticed that the whole Haverford area is comprised of an eclectic mix of building styles. Very interesting.
On the way back I got stuck in traffic for at least 45 minutes at the George Washington bridge in New York City. The stretch I-91 between New Haven and Bradley had the least traffic of the entire day and it was almost relaxing driving the last part of the day.
