last year took a rail trip clockwise around USA. v interesting way to see the States. First leg was taking the California Zephyr from Chicago to Reno. 2 whole days on the train. wow! This was taken in Nevada. As i stood by the side of the train, I could see the houses opposite. I will always remember how surreal it was to be riding the train through arid utah as i chatted with a lovely, witty, and very down to earth irish man on the way to discovering himself in california.
