The Long & Winding Road

September 19th:

Long trip today – covered 350 miles from Cleveland to Chicago. It wasn’t actually as bad as I thought – the roads are very easy to use, truck drivers actually get out of your way and there’s so much to see. Ohio was a surprise – it’s so flat with not too many trees – it seems like the sky goes on forever. Little Fisher Price farmhouses are dotted all over the place and they all look so picturesque. Fuel is also sooo cheap – I can do just over 100 miles for $10 – not bad.

Took a break at a Walmart Supercentre. OMG you can buy everything from Cheese that helps with bloatedness (this made O and I break out in fits of laughter) to guns. I wonder how many Tesco Clubcard vouchers I would need?? Our accent is conspicuos and soon we had friendly questions. Also saw an Amish couple shopping for baby stuff – you get a real slice of life at Walmart!

Reached Chicago in rush hour and went straight past the Sears tower – wow! Finally found the motel after circling the airport 3 times but am surprised how this has not stressed me out yet. Driving in the centre of town I think would do it but one thing at a time! Expolring tomorrow and no driving – yeah!!
