So one day Auston and I were taking the train in Mexico City and we saw that it was coming so we quickly ran toward it. Auston barely made it into the train in time and the doors closed on his foot. I was right behind him but didn't make it in. We both just stared at each other through the window and quickly gestured that we would meet at the next stop.

So I waited for the next train, found him at the next stop and we continued on our way. However, this scenario prompted us to come up with a plan should it happen again. We decided that if one person makes it on the train, he should get off at the next stop and that's where we'll meet since it worked out fine that first time.

And wouldn't you know it, the same thing happened again last week while Auston's brother Robert was visiting. All three of us tried to cram ourselves into a packed bus and once again I didn't make it on. My backpack was getting caught in the doors and I had to step out. Luckily I found Robert and Auston waiting for me at the next bus stop!

So meeting spots aren't just for when you're in a crowded tourist spot. It's also a great idea when taking public transit in a big city!
