17. Calm is the operative word!

We decided to upgrade to a 'roomette' on the trip back. They are tiny, tiny,
private cabins to accommodate two people. There was an upper berth--which the attendant
put down--where my husband was napping. That meant I had the two reclining seats-- which
faced each other--to my self. We sat in coach seats on the way up and were surrounded
by a family with 4 kids--all well behaved--but one young enough to need constant attention
and supervision. And the cell phones! On planes you can't use cell phones, but on the train
everyone was having a conversation! So, you nailed it: it was worth the extra $$ both for my
husband to nap and me not to listen to constant chatter! We still ended up paying less than it would
have cost to fly. DC was SO crowded--awful traffic--that driving would have been a nightmare. We took
the train and used the Metro. Piece of cake.
