Chicago, United States

Sorry it took so long...

Well, lots of things happened since I've been here last time... so, I'll make a brief exposure of what was Chicago for me... and it was awesome.

I am a very lucky girl! (I wish I could say more, but I can't...). Anyway, we stayed at a very nice hotel (a expensive one, but we'd paid half price - employees price). The room had a king size bed, viewing the river, and a very nice square with trees and lights. Awesome!

And so is Chicago. We've been to lots of places (unfortunatelly we only had 3 days there... before Xmas). But the best is the Millenium Park, because of the big "bean" from Anish Kapoor (well, Frank Gehry is there too, but... you know, is Frank Gehry). The bean was an awesome stuff, but don't go there drunk, in the middle of the night =)

Well, then we got a city pass, and we've visited the Field Museum and the Aquarium. The Aquarium was very fun, we spent hours there, seeing Belugas, and dolphins and lizards. Things that we both love.

And there's more (I left the best part to the end!): my first night in Chicago ended with a HOCKEY GAME! And that was for sure one of the best things I've seen. It was a show indeed!!! Loved to see the guys playing, fighting, the shitty beer we had, and the fact that we won the match. Too bad that I don't remember the name of the team right now.

The nightlife were fun too. I am learning a lot about beer, cherries and dive bars. Good stuff.

Travelling is my best "consume good"... I mean, I don't want a big car, a big house, expensive clothes, meals in fancy restaurants... I just want to go around the world to see that we're all the same.
It doesn't matter if you are in São Paulo, or in Moscow, or in some remote place in Africa......
