Much developments since the last whinging. Two hours before Amtrak would reach Chicago, at the same time my flight to Dublin/London whizzed by overhead without me, I checked my email and my eyes almost popped out of my head. Dublin flight CANCELED, please call Orbitz. After 45 minutes on hold with Orbitz, they said call the airline. After 1.5 hours on hold with the airline, I got through, while standing in noisy but not impossible Union Station.

Now I am rescheduled for tomorrow afternoon instead, spending the night in the Chicago Hostel, *without* having had to go on a mad, expensive dash over to the airport.

I don't remember much from those last two hours on the train. Time for food and sleeping.

WOW!! One of those amazing, fortuitous coincidences that just make everything better. Sleep well and hope tomorrow is quite relaxing in comparison!

Oy, what a mess. At least Chicago is a good city for walking around in. I'm not quite sure which hostel you're in, but if it's near Union Station, you're just a little west of the Loop, a couple of large parks, and the Museum District. I know you said you didn't like museums much, but the Shedd Aquarium is in the same area.
