“Oh beautiful, for pilgrim feet, whose stern impassioned ways, a thoroughfare of freedom beat, across the wilderness! America, America, God mend thine every flaw, Confirm thy soul in self control, thy liberty in law.” (We’re celebrating Thanksgiving week by quoting our favorite patriotic songs. Any suggestions?)
Yes, I had steak on the train. Amtrak's food is quite good considering it's prepared in a tiny kitchen. Since we got a sleeper room all meals and soft drinks are included in the price of the fare which isn't a bad deal.
