Home Again

I arrived at Union Statio in Washington, DC early this afternoon. The lobby of the station is newly restored and beautiful. The same cannot be said for the passenger boarding areas. It was 95 degrees (35 C) and a shock to the system, but I am home again.

Almost On The Rails Again

A Lovely Delay

My train arrived in Chicago late, and I missed my connection to Washington, DC. Amtrak booked me into a lovely hotel, the Swissotel, and I upgraded to a corner room with a view. It has been years since I was in Chicago. I’d forgotten what a lovely city it is, even though I could see a Trump hotel in the distance. Lake Michigan is always worth it. I love train travel but it was nice to have a bed that didn’t move all night.

Sqare Perspective #1

Underground Pedestrian Passageway

Pedestrian tunnel in Genoa, Italy connecting the old town with an elevator to the viewpoint overlooking the city. The passageway opened in the fall of 2019. It saves you a steep climb up seemingly endless sets of stairs.
