One old gentleman was sitting beside me. After dinner, he moved to sleeper car.

A trick learned: if u wait till the last minute of the dinner serving time, you'll get cheaper on sleeper car, and still enjoy 2 full meals

9:40pm, somewhere in NY, a law enforcement officer walked in the car. First, I thought that he is a police officer. Then, I heard him asking the 2 asian MM's I'd(passport).They answered as Korean. I realized that they are immigration officials.

Couple of minutes later, 2 officers escorted away 2 spaniards.
pompano at 12/01/2007 21:52 快速引用
haha, do you bring your own passport?


Keep broadcast your experience in the train, including the Seattle trip.

By the way, i will send my friend's phone number to you, in case you need to travel guide in Seattle.

Have fun!

Good morning. I just wake up from the first night sleep on the train. Not too bad.

We are some where in Indiana. It is flat and snowwhite.

When we were at Erie, PA, there was another immigration/border officer boared the train. He waked up everybody to ask for citizenship. I handed him my China passport which has a Canada visa stamp. Then, he asked:" Are u Canada citizen?" Uh?#!+?..m

I don't know how safe the US border is. And, now, I understood why the illegal immigrants are so easy to get in..

"He waked up everybody to ask for citizenship."


That's no good. When travel around border states of Mexico, it would make sense.

Have a happy day!

The Empire Builder left Chicago Union station on time. We just passed the windy city skyline.

Btw, since my last train was late for about 2 hours, I had lunch in Lao Sichuan.instead of the downtown American restaurant. The Mao Xuewang (pork blood) is very good.

Next destination: Twin City.

It is rainy in Chicago area, not much to see.

Interestingly, I find out that this train has real cook in the dining car, and reservation is reqired for dinner. The #49 train from NYC to Chicago only has microwave heated food.

GO!胖兄!GO!!!

多用相机的video功能拍摄视屏吧,到时候编辑起来给我们电视台做个节目---胖胖旅行记。介绍的时候可以对准自己拍摄,采用小型便携式三脚架。一般相机一次拍十分钟卡就满了,你应该带着计算机的吧,可以下载了就腾空出来。或者通过网络上载。多买张记忆卡吧,俺给你报销。
