Illinois Outside of Chicago (Lameness, IL)

Day 3: Monday June 1st, The Rest of Illinois, Iowa, and Nebraska:

We got up early on Sunday for the longest driving portion of the trip, Point A: Chicago to Point B: Gothenburg, NE.

Upon leaving Len's apartment and finding the interstate again, we passed through the New Seoul of Chicago, so apartently there is a healthy Korean-American population in Chicago.

But once we left Chicago, we realized the rest of Illinois was way less interesting. It was amplified by the fact it was raining constantly:

And after awhile we crossed the Mississippi River. It was nothing like what I had envisioned after reading Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn. I guess the Mississippi gets better in the South:


And on the other side, lay Iowa and its fields of opportunities!!!
