My aunt told me the Wi-fi access was 10 bucks at this hotel. I silently scoffed in derision. What place would charge for something that could be gained for free at the nearest McD's or any of the 5 Starbucks locations within a stone's throw? Turns out this one does. Hmph. I found another connection. After all, I had to update my blog. I'm tired, though, so I'll just post a few of the pictures that I was able to snag from the moving train.

Nifty method of travel, the train, but it's time-consuming. It has its perks, though, like leg room. No seriously, I took a picture to prove that there's still such a thing in contemporary methods of transport.
And this next one I just thought was nifty. Can you spot the smoke against the clouds?
