Friday (St Anskar)
This was a taxing and at times stressful day of travel, but all's well that ends well. Had a nice breakfast in Washington with my friends Christopher Wells, editor of The Living Church, who also happened to be visiting there. Then by taxi to Union Station, by train to Baltimore-Washington airport, a two hour flight to Chicago O'Hare, a ride on the Blue Line 'L' that lasted the better part of an hour, six long blocks on foot to Union Station (plus a couple of wrong guesses in how to get across a Wacker Drive under construction, a two hour wait in the second Union Station of the day, then a three-and-a-half hour ride on Amtrak to Springfield. Brenda was waiting for me, and we got home around 9. I think I have the public transportation thing pretty well covered.
