Ann Arbor, MI
Arrived Monday, midnight.
Slept in until 10.30
Dragged around , moving slowly.
Today, went to a coffe house, book store, bought 6 computer related magazines.
Overall body aches, my feet hurt as I walk the streets of Ann Arbor.
That ride on Amtrak sure did stuff to me.
I sleep poorly in those coach seats.
Cannot get anywhere comfortable.
And my style of travel, sometimes I don't know when I'm departing or where I'm going
until the day I book a fare.
Someday, I'll be able to afford a sleeper, if I book early enough.
And a sleeper would be woth the cost.
I pack food, this time micro meals,
fresh fruit bought at stops along the way,
I bought Amtrak coffee at $1.50 , with a refill.
Bratwurst, and a hot dog, a pastry.
Total Amtrak food cost was about $15.00 for the three days on board.
I recommend a good pillow, or a full body pillow, or one of those
neat beads pillows.
I lost my water bottle with filter, Brita, and chanced the onboard train water.
Okay. Just tasted yucky.
But the pain, the body aches, the adventure of rail travel.
I like the Chicago train station.
When I'm there, I eat Chinese.
Check out the magazine shop, and watch all those people
On to New York next week.
