One of the graduation presents from my parents was a vacation with Riva. For many reasons including affordability, last-minute planning, proximity, and adventure, Riva and I chose to take the train to Providence, a place that neither of us knew very much about. Thanks to my mom’s Internet-savvy researching skills and thanks to Priceline, this old Mason building turned out to be our hotel.
And what a hotel it was. We’re pretty sure the interior decorator was high or uncomfortable with the world of the subtle. The hotel’s theme is “carnival” and there isn’t a lamp or pillow that survived untouched.
What we learned: Providence is a very weird place because it’s:
4. without personality
Still, we had fun walking all over town. It’s been a long time since both of us were so relaxed that we kept slurring our words, crossing the street without checking for oncoming traffic, and running into each other. This was a much needed vacation.
