My final day in Chicago has taught me a lot. From sore feet to rumbling bellies, sometimes life is full of compromises. But that's not necessarily a bad thing -- I got as much out of my time in Chicago for myself as anyone else, if not more. It served as a reflective period as well as an eye-opening week. Take the initiative, experience the world.
The first day of solo travel to Chicago was an interesting experience. From strange people riding the bus to spectacular sights, my first several hours in the great city of Chicago has me awe struck. Amazing architecture, a bustling city life, and so much to do for free has me hooked already. I wonder where the next several days will take me!
