Where I stayed
Typical, the only day so far of our trip where it totally pissed down! - oh well it is November after all, and we have had it pretty well good so far with the weather.
So with the crappy hotel in mind (which we canceled the second night) and the crappy rain, we decided not to stay the extra day in Chicago, so we did the typical true Fuglie style of driving round the city ourselves and taking the pictures on the fly.
I would still like to come back here and probably for 3 days or so to properly visit the city, and in the summer too. It was a shame.
Despite the advice given by the hotel receptionist not to drive through the city, I thought yeah whatever,I am BRITISH don't you know!!!
So after a quick spin around the city, we headed off to an unplanned stop because we was just dog tired again today, so we stopped at the Best Western hotel in Howe, which is a small Hamish county in the state of Indiana. - A room is fantastic, nice whirlpool in it!
We had supper at the adjacent Chinese restaurant, we had a lovely curry, and the bottle of Bud was $1 a bottle! yes that's right for those in BC who are reading this! $1.00 - it was on offer but the regular price is $3 - man this place is so cheap, so glad we are doing this trip through the US than Canada.
OK, so we are having a lie in tomorrow, cause we want to use the whirlpool when we get up! lol
Then we heading off to somewhere in New York state, but not the big apple, it is just New York state.
