Where I stayed
Chicago International Hostel
Our breakfast was standard stuff...toast, cereal, mini-muffins, that sort of thing. After our meal we went back to the room, packed, put our bags in a locker and set out to see some of the city.
The first impression of Chicago: SUNSHINE!! Sweet, blessed, SUNSHINE!! After weeks of dreary Seattle rain... and... snow... we finally got to see the sun!! We walked a couple of blocks to Millenium Park, and I took lots of pics and movies (as you get to see a few here). They were just starting to unload equipment for what looks to be a movie about to be filmed on location. Cool.
After seeing the cool sculptures and stuff (they had some weird metal things in a row, and this huge, giant metal jellybean thing) we made our way back toward out hostel and lunch. What could be a more appropriate place for lunch than a place called EPIC BURGER! :D
So now we are at the library, finishing up today's entry just 4 hours away from taking off from O'Hare to Paris. It will be a long flight (just over 8 hours) with probably not much sleep (again). Next stop Paris!
