So our first night on a train is over. Picture this, you are on the top floor of a train and then on a bunk bed. The experience was both enjoyable and at times scary. The only way to describe the scary bit is by imagining that you are travel in an aeroplane through extreme turbulence. But I did manage a reasonable nights sleep.
We arrived in Chicago an hour late and then enjoyed a three hour tour with our guide Wayne. We had a lunch stop at the American Embassy (McDonalds), Wayne’s words. On the tour we learnt about the Blues and Gangsters, in particular Al Capone. We were shown the site of the St Valentine Massacre.
