Chicago Day 2: Museum Campus & Adler Planetarium

This morning I woke up with a stuffed stomach…gosh, the deep dish pizza is delicious but also addicting. I can’t stop eating them!

It was such a beautiful day to go out (though a little bit windy) and with over three months of freezing cold winter in Columbus, I enjoyed walking around the park so much. I really needed this!

With a warm sunny weather, we decided to go over to Museum Campus and Adler planetarium. I didn’t have any idea how the Museum Campus looks like prior to arrival, so it was quite a surprise to see the area used for sports (like running, biking, jogging and such). I’d imagined that it was built mostly for tourism purpose, especially because you can see the entire downtown buildings from here. But seeing many locals utilizing this space was great to see. It is a place for both the locals and the foreigners.

On top of that, the amount of educational institutions within the area, like the Museum of Science and Industry, Field Museum, and Shedd aquarium, was astonishing. I’m very sure that you will never ever get bored in here. There are so much to see and learn! Ah, I am so jealous.

New Trip

It has been a long long long time since my last post in the winter. To wrap up that trip, I want to say that my mind was refreshed and refilled with energy from the warm sun and blue azure sky in Los Angeles. Ah, how I miss warm places in the cold dooming winter.

Currently, my school is on a week spring break, and this time, my friends and I are on a very short trip in…Chicago! This is the first time I’m visiting here, and along some of my research, I’ve heard many rumors about this city – it’s windy, it’s rainy, it’s big art city, it’s famous for mafia – but I’m just as excited to see it with my own eyes!

Tomorrow marks the official first day of Chicago trip. Luckily, it is also St. Patrick’s Day! I can’t wait for it!
