Subject: On the train
It's about 10 PM. Marco [and I] and two
other people just got through eating dinner. Marco had
the half chicken with a potato. I had some crunchy
fish. The dude we sat with was from Japan. He was
really cool. He is on his way to Bozeman, Montana. He told
us that kids in Japan lose their minds over 'Digimon'
and 'Pokemon' too (PIKACHU!).
Today was pretty cool - Marco [and I] learned how to use the digital and the [film]
cameras. The scenery is changing very rapidly,
although it is so dark I can't see any of it. Earlier there was a beautiful sunset that we had
trouble capturing [with the camera], but we did.
It seems that all the
people we got on the train with are all gone. Most
stayed on the train for a few hours then left. When we
took a catnap earlier; I was afraid of missing
something spectacular or really cool.
cookies for us, and we just tore them up. She said she
made them with love. I really hope that that's all
she made the cookies with.
Me and what's his name
are getting along really well. I really can't believe
I was worried - some of his jokes are funny! WOW! This
trip does rock.
Say, I am really gonna miss my family,
specially my mom. I hope things stay cool. I am kinda
worried though, but who can blame me? I'm not really
nervous. I'm just going with the flow. But I hope that
my brother can hold it down for me until the day I get
back. I'm sure he will.
We're in Minnesota now, and right now it's 10:55 PM.
I am kinda tired. Marco is very energetic because of the
ginseng in his drink.
