Three more states

We stayed the night at another Courtyard Marriott hotel, where we had breakfast in the morning (because we remembered how good the breakfast was the previous day). After a short drive we got to Madison, WI, where we spent a few hours driving around to see the place where Kaveh and Soheila ended up (at least for a while). We drove through Minessota without stopping at all and finally crossed into South Dakota. Our next hotel was Fairfield Inn in Sioux Falls, where they wanted to give us a stinky smoking room. While they were “looking” for a non-smoking room we had dinner at Fryn’ Pan. Good family restaurant… we also had breakfast there the next day.

Three states

After a good night sleep at Lida’s aunt we left Maryland early in the morning. Since we had a 12-hours drive in front of us, we went through Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana stopping only for food and gas. Sometimes it was quite difficult to drive through the pouring rain with the wipers barely being able to do their job. But it is better to get some nasty weather while driving to than while visiting Chicago. The first stop we planned for was in Merrillville, IN, less than an hour away from downtown Chicago. We had dinner at Balagio Ristorante , where we got lucky with only one dish of the two we ordered (if you ever get there, order chicken Vesuvio and avoid Pollo Nilla). The hotel was nice and cozy, but we had really noisy neighbors. We complained about them and we got a free (and very good) breakfast :).
