Today I’m sharing photos from my trip to Chicago last month. I had been promising my friend Phillip that I would visit him when he moved to Chicago since we graduated from high school and I finally did… 6 years later. We went to The Field Museum, took a water taxi on Lake Michigan, drank strawberry mojitos at The Signature Room, rode razor scooters at Maggie Daley Park, saw Cloud Gate ‘AKA’ “The Bean,” hit up the bars in Boystown, and of course I experienced all the great food Chicago has to offer like their famous deep dish pizza. Although I could certainly do without the drastic changes in weather, Chicago was incredible and I cannot wait to visit again soon in another 6 years.
A special thank you to my friend Phillip. Thank you for housing me, feeding me, entertaining me, and showing me your beautiful city.
