This very engaging young British couple took their first every trip to the USA just before the pandemic. The filmmaker loves jazz and the blues, and incorporates music magnificently, often remaining silent to allow both the music and the visuals tell the story. And it is structured as a story, not really a how-to/tips or a critique/review.

It’s advertised as NY to LA, including a rather funny segment via Greyhound from NY to DC. The rest is all via train and all in the regular coaches. Intermediate layovers were in Chicago, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Salinas/Monterey.

They’re captivated, inter alia, by America’s audible crosswalk signals — Wait! Wait!
