Omaha - town on the border of Nebraska and Iowa. A lot of heavy industrial red-brick buildings, many of them abandoned. The city has definately different atmosphere from California's breezy San Francisco, or New York's contemporary style. Omaha does not have that metropolitan feel, but instead very small, accessible, friendly old-type of place. We found a nice cozy place for brunch, just off the red-brick bumpy street. Reminds me of the old remoted streets in Europe...  

Right after we exit Nebraska, right away we see the huge casinos. Didn't know Iowa is a gumbling state... We feel like we were back in Nevada, where in fact we are right in the center of United States!

Nebraska and Iowa are different from the dry rocky Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. Here we see a lot of green fields with the beautiful tiny field flowers, lots of forests, and more houses scattered arround. The towns seem to be more connected with each other, there are no huge empty spaces like those in the states we previously passed through. The landscape is a lot like Eastern Europe's countryside. Besides that cornfields are everywhere. Is that where they made all those teenager horror movies? 


Nazar has mentioned few times already how much he likes those green, European-looking towns of Iowa and Nebraska... I'm freaking out; aren't we supposed to go for a big city???
