I'm taking a bus > train > bus trip with stopovers in Buffalo for 5 hours (the Amtrak station near the airport) and in Chicago (Union Station). Mainly looking for ways to stave off boredom & essentials to pack. And while the answer may be "nothing" - what can I get up to while I'm stopped in Buffalo and Chicago?
1. What are the best ways to keep occupied on a long trip
2. I just got an Android phone - best offline apps / especially diverting things I can put on my phone?
3. What are must-pack items for a series of bus and train trips?
4. What should I do in Buffalo for ~5 hours on the way out and Chicago for 6 & 7 hours respectively on either end of the trip?
