we managed to escape Chicago by walking many blocks (well, a few up and six or so right) and getting some help from a nice homeless person - for a price! I have to say, my first ever driving experience in the USA started at Union Station and nearly ended with me pooing my pants. Talk about jumping in at the deep end! Filling up the car was a stress too, the nozzle didn't reach, forgot to pop the filler cap open. I'm sure locals laughed at me, I don't think the woman at the next pump had ever heard a real life Englishman dropping F Bombs with such skill before! Made it to Champaign safely and found our self at a Mexican place. In American you can add cheese and bacon to most thing. It makes life better but on top of 3 pork chops, might be a touch OTT!
