main street - 1
I left my sister's place in Chicago, and headed to Midway Airport, to pick up a rental car. Then headed out of Illinois and into Iowa. Have to say, the drive did look kind of nice, but I did not have much time to stop.
I crossed the Mississippi River, and entered into Iowa. I always thought of this as Middle America, or the part of America's Heartland. I headed for the Field of Dreams in Iowa. The drive would take about 4 hours, and it started to rain when I got into Dyersville.
I was driving through farmlands when it started to rain really hard. And it was very scary, being in the open field, and seeing lightning in the distance. I even prayed that I would get out of that alive, because it was that scary. And I decided to stay in the area for the night. So I checked into a Super 8 Motel.
When the rain stopped, I went to the business district and spent a little time there. It does seem like a small American town, which was nice. Kind of what I pictured in my mind.
I did not do much, and just relaxed in my hotel room. I would have a longer drive the next day.
