I had a lovely dinner aboard the train to Chicago. No, of course I didn't go to the café car: I brought a sourdough bread that I'd sliced about half of, an assortment of cheeses, and some salami (sopressa, I think).

It was not unlike meals I'd brought on to trains in, say, Bologna or Rome. Immensely satisfying, but it was missing wine. In Italy you can get a juice box of table wine, perfect for the train! a bottle and a glass are impractical. I wanted travel wine. Definitely on the list of things to bring back next time... especially because I couldn't find any online. Is there no market for this here? Why the stupid small bottles? Who wants to drink out of those? They need a glass. Although props of course to this kickass sparkling wine packaging.
