If I don’t come home call my mother and tell her I love her

I Uber-ed! What is an Uber? Well the young kid with hip multi colored glasses at my hotel check in desk tells me it’s the easiest and cheapest way to travel these days. I needed to get from the hotel to the park cheaply and quickly. I didn’t have much time and wanted to maximize it. So cute glasses guy gave me a coupon code for a free ride and the deal was sealed. I downloaded the Uber app and saw a car would pick me up in two minutes. It included a photo of my driver, a photo of the car, and an estimate of the fare. (Cheaper than a taxi even if I had to pay.) I was picked up in a clean car by a charming Ethiopian fellow and was offered a bottle of water. At this point I pretended I was a celebrity and enjoyed a peaceful and easy journey to my destination with pleasant conversation. I’ll never travel any other way ever again. Not only was I not killed by a homicidal maniac through an app I actually enjoyed the process and loved giving my money directly to the driver. I would highly recommend Uber to anyone traveling without a car! (Sorry taxi and blue shuttle people!)
