Plan: fly from LAX to Baltimore, then to DC.
I took two flights.
Uber to LAX. $42
Flight one: LAX to Houston, Texas.
Flight two: Houston, Texas to Baltimore, Maryland.
Arrived in Baltimore – BWI.
Take the shuttle from the airport to the rail station. FREE
Buy a ticket for the train. They call it the MARC. $7.00.
Take the MARC into Washington, DC and arrive at Union Station.
At Union Station, take an Uber to my friends place. $12
Meeting a woman from England who was on both flights sitting across from me and again at the train station: PRICELESS.
Wish I caught her name.
