We got into Chicago 2h late, because someone on the trasin passed away last night during the ride. Coming into the city we quickly found a nice place for crashing in downtown Chicago. It's the Hostelling International and it is clean and inexpensive.
We put our stuff away and took off to see the city, walking around in some parks, watching people play baseball and staring at the sky scrapers.
Now we are off to experience some night life. Probably going to a nice little blues bar.
