Chicago!


The best thing about moving to Michigan, I am only 4 hours away from Chicago! So, for fall break, my roommates and I went. We packed small bags, hopped on the 7:30 am Megabus (it was totally worth the $8 ticket) and went to Chicago. It was awesome. I haven't been since I was probably 10 or 11 (I think I was in 5th grade). We got lost on the streets, went to Millenium park, had fantastic deep dish pizza (so, so, so good),went to iO (improv olympics, where we learned that record keepers keep records, not tears) went to the Museum of Science and Industry, visited the Japanase Gardens left from the World's Fair, rode the bus and El (I love public transportation, seriously), wandered around a tragically hip part of town, got our hairs cut, went to the Art Institute, missed our train home, rented a car and drove back. It was quite the couple of days, so much fun! I hope to do it again sometime!
