So picture this journey.
A Ghanaian mother with her 4 young kids in a country they know nobody and does not speak the language. All she could say was hello and thank you.
Well that’s me and my munchkins…last weekend the kids and I set out to explore La Plata to meet our other homeschool family.
Got to the train station and could not read any sign nor does anyone there speak english.
Stood in a line to hopefully get a ticket from the ticket machine because the ticket counter office was closed.
After about 30min in line and got to the machine it was in spanish too…so could not read it. So I went to the information center and I said La plata…and pointing to myself and the kids. LOL!!!
Well the guy at the counter was so helpful and with our smiles he walked us all the way to the train and said free…so yeap there you have who said you need a whole lot of money to travel….lol!! A few smiles and you get free train rides.
Got on the train and then the bus and after 2 hours we are in La Plata.
Met our beautiful homeschool family and we spend the day touring through the city.
La plata is a beautiful city. I felt like the whole city is a park.
And to our suprise it’s a diagonal city…yeap…that means you can get lost and walk all around the city just to get back to your apartment. Or if you know the diagonal points then your walk is cut off short for you.
Here are a few photos of our weekend
