WHERE IN THE WORLD IS KEN? - by Marla Mink-Johnson

Ken has been enjoying the wonderful foods the restaurants in Chicago have to offer. He made a trip home via Amtrak where the gastronomic offerings weren't quite as classy but he did his best by laying out a table cloth for his hot dogs, chips, and drink.
