    After a week on the road without any kind of rice, I was ready for some Asian food. Any Asian food. It was a good thing that the couple that my brother is renting from had a good recommendation in Chinatown. It was in Boston's Chinatown area. It was called Taiwan Cafe and supposed to be run by Taiwanese people. So we got on the red line from Davis Square and got off at Downtown. We walked from the Boston Commons area to Chinatown, which is basically just down Washington Street.

    USA Road Trip Day 7: Albany > Boston

    Waking up in the Fort Orange Club is a different experience than the nocturnal experience. It is an amazing thing what a little sunlight can do to change the aura and feel of a place. Gone are the dark hallways lit by red exit signs. What is up with that anyways? We have green exit signs in the West Coast. Why would anyone want creepy red auras at night?

    USA Road Trip 2010: A Retrospective

    After about seven days on the road and a few days in Boston, I am ready to look back at the experience of driving across the country. From the coasts of the Pacific ocean to the shores of the Atlantic oceans, the journey in between is described as a lot of farms in the middle. If you are going to do a tour of the US, then be prepared for a lot of monotonous segments of scenery.

    USA Road Trip Day 5: Chicago > Cleveland

    Every morning my brother wakes up rather early to do his workout. I joined him for a couple of workouts but no where near his level of intensity. This morning I didn't go workout with him. Instead, I took the few hours I had in the morning to look around the downtown area of Chicago.

    I think the Holiday Inn Express in Omaha is the first time I saw a housekeeping maid that wasn't black, hispanic, or Asian.

    The Washington Park area of Denver is throwback to my memory of Solano Avenue in Berkeley. Parking at a 45 degree angle against the street, quaint little shops, and loads of interesting restaurants.

    USA Road Trip Day 2: Las Vegas > Denver

    With our hotel room package came a ticket for the spa. So guess what I went to do first thing in the morning? I went to soak in a jacuzzi at 8am in the morning. So the spa had an attendant, showers, shaving station, hair styling station, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, and pressure shower.

    USA Road Trip Day 1: Los Angeles > Las Vegas

    Leaving Los Angeles (really East San Gabriel Valley) around 2pm sounded like a good idea. Unfortunately, we ran into some lunch time traffic on the 60 freeway. But after a twenty minute sojourn in traffic, we were on our way.

    USA Road Trip 2010

    Going from the West Coast to East Coast in one week in a car. Sounds crazy? It kind of is. I will do my best to chronicle the trip through this blog on time. If not, then I will do it when I get back to the land where then sun sets in the ocean instead of rising from it.
