Timezone 1

A full 24hrs later, we left one timezone for another.

I'm sitting in the dome, enjoying the sunset, and the peacefulness of it all.

Here there is nothing, no people, no towns, no cars, just trees, nature, lakes, blue skies and the sunset.
Ah yes the sunset...

Our train races forward on the track, moving ever so close to Winnipeg. As if it was racing backwards in time, trying to fight for the passengers, a little more time to view the sunset, just a little more before darkness envelopes us. But then again, it knows, darkness will come.

The sky darkens.

And the world... the world opens up.

Stars pop out. The moon says hi through the reflections off the water surface and plays hide and seek through the trees.

I wish I could capture all of this in a picture, but to no avail, be it the glass dome reflecting off the lights, or the not up to snuff photo sensitivity on my camera.

This moment, I wish I could be on the train for a long time, I'm not heading towards a vacation, I'm on it right now.
