We get up at around 08:00 (Diane a little earlier). I had intended to try to go up the Willis Tower (ex Sears Tower) this morning, but it is raining and I do not have the enthusiasm. I decide to have breakfast with Di and do a little shopping, and laze around before meeting in reception at 12:00 to check up and head to the station – same procedure as the last couple of times so we are all getting drilled in the procedure. After a short stop in the lounge we head to catch the train to Denver. The sleeper is similar to that which we took from New York to Washington. We settle in and pass the time by reading and I catch up on my blog, we have some wine from the dining car. The scenery is getting a little more rural with lots of farming land and small towns. There seems to be an absence of any human beings, you don't even see a farmer woking on the land. The only notable highlight is crossing over the Mississippi River

We have dinner in the dining car and retire early. Not much more to say for today - essentially a day travelling!
