Today marks the last full day I'm spending here in Chicago, so I gotta make the best out of the time that I have here right now!
Yuefan and I drew up the entire day plan so that we could get through everything without a problem or time conflict. We wanted to catch a movie since we had some time to kill, so we watched Ultraviolet at the local AMC.
We walked to Navy Pier, which was about eight blocks from where we were. I guess what really made the walk seem short were the frequent stops we had to make... like... Ghiradelli's, bathrooms, ATM machines, etc. When we got there, it blew my mind to see that the lake was completely frozen! There were ships that were frozen up to their second decks!
It was a great time: playing carnival games, eating at Bubba Gump, drinking margaritas, and buying souvenirs. But yeah, time to go to the Bulls game!
The United Center is always a great experience, and I actually prefer it a lot more than the Staples Center. The Bulls were playing the Bobcats, and we had floor seats next to the color commentators. It was cool to get a chance to take some pictures with the Bulls players. Surprisingly, the Bulls lost that game. Yes, to the Bobcats.... -_-
The train ride took about an hour or so from the United Center, so I knocked out for a bit. I had a great time here. I fly back tomorrow night, and right after that, I have another flight to catch to Puerto Rico. I really do love traveling. :)
