The Starlight Express

Today has been pretty uneventful as far as companies or activities go as today we are traveling from Seattle to San Francisco via train. We got up and left our hotel in Seattle around 8am and made our way to the Amtrak station a couple of light rail stops from our hotel. Our train left at 9:30am and we will be arrive in San Francisco at around 9:00am the next morning so we have a solid 24 hours on the train. The scenery is pretty nice, although most of it so far has been city or towns so I’m hoping that we eventually get to see some cool landscapes. Aside from being on the train for five hours now, we did get one half hour stop in Portland to walk around a bit. A group of us walked into town a ways and grabbed some stuff for dinner so we didn’t have to eat at the over-priced dinner car. So I will probably just be reading and listening to music for the next couple of hours until I try to get some sleep. Hopefully I get to sleep early because I get to get up at 4:30am to listen to Chelsea (my favorite soccer team from London) play Hull City. I don’t know how these west coast Chelsea fans do it but I'm going to give it my best.
