After we left Minnesota we headed for Denver but due to the rail times etc we had to do a one night stop over in Chicago and since we hadn't managed to get a night out in one of the Blues or Jazz clubs we thought this would be the perfect excuse!

We headed to our hostel, which was different from the last dodgy one we stayed while in Chicago - this hostel was really nice and absolutely massive!

We met up with a few other guys in the hostel, they were from Germany, Texas (Trent) and Oz we had great crack talking the ususal banter then we headed out for the night to a blues club one of the locals had recommended to us - this was a typical American Blues club were the singer walks through the crowd playing his guitar!

We had great crack watching the locals dance...u wanna see the state of some of them, they were worth watching never mind anything else!!

After getting into the swing of it all, we then decided to join them on the dance floor - i'm sure they were thinking the same thing about us by the end of it!! :) But a big nights craic was had by all.

When we got back to the hostel of course the $5 vending machine pizza had to be tried....think getting drinks out of a machine is fancy?!?! and the pizza wasn't too bad either!

Next day we headed on our way again....
