Day 27 - Fri 5 May 06
Another day on the train, I've done breakfast and lunch. We're running about three hours late, but due to a creative timetable (westbound the first stop from Chicago take 30mins, but eastbound it takes one hour and 30mins), so I guess we'll make up an hour. That will give me a couple of hours in Chicago. I've spent most of the day snoozing in my cabin, I guess I was more tired that I thought I was
The train got in at 18:15, and was three hours late, so I got out of the station and walked around a few blocks just to get some fresh air before jumping on the next train.
At supper the waiter was going to sit me next to two rather large ladies, a mother and daughter, but then he realised that I wouldn't fit on the table with them so he quickly put me on another empty table. I don't know what the expression on my face was, but his was a picture! The conductor on this train is a lot better than the last, he's visible, sorted out my supper reservation and answered all my dumb questions.
