Wrapping up Chicago

Drunken bar peopleWe hit all the major attractions in Chicago, most importantly deep dish pizza. Our waiter at Gino’s East recommended a good bar that was open on Monday night, so we went there afterwards for a few drinks. Ryan, our ex-waiter, turned up a few minutes later and we shared stories from the road. Turns out he’s about as well traveled as we are. It also turns out that being a waiter at Gino’s East is more lucrative than a lot of jobs in the Internet industry :-)

We head out shortly for Minneapolis, MN, mainly to see the Mall of America and break apart the long East -> West migration. After that it’s a night at Mt. Rushmore and then four beautiful days at Yellowstone National Park. I checked the weather out there which suggested that we purchase large winter coats at the Mall. We have decided that should we get stranded and have to eat our limbs / road trip companions, it’ll make for really good blogging material. Lets hope it doesn’t come to that!

this just in…winter mix forecast for jellystone! Good thing someone had the foresight to send the intrepid lifecationers a care package. ;-) Those meat marinades should be just the thing to tenderize the odd body part!
Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Btw, where are the photos of greek town??
