Went to Chicago on Monday with a couple of friends to check out the city some more. We drove to Indiana and took the commuter train into the city. About 3 hours to get there that way. It would be about 2.5 hours driving straight through, but taking the train means I don’t have the stress of parking and driving in rush hour traffic. We made sure I knew how to find the seminary from the train stop and then went off to explore the rest of the city. Getting around was pretty easy. We used the bus, subway and a free trolley that runs during the summer. We went to the Shedd Aquarium, which was nice. We wanted to see the whales but the exhibit was closed as the mama whale had just given birth a few days earlier. After that we went to Millenium Park. The rest of the day was mainly walking around and getting to know how to move around the city. It was fun. A good day with good friends.
