we then took the el back to the loop where we chilled for a few hours until it was time for our train back to home. we walked down the streets and sat and relaxed in the gardens at the art institute. the gardens were so beautiful!
we then walked over to millenium park (for a second time). we took pictures of the cloud gate and us by the cloud gate. it was neat. there were a lot of people there, too, because it was polish constitution day.
here are steve and i! can you spot us?
from there...we walked over to the jay pritzker pavilion. they were having a polish singer performing. steve and i sat in the grass and listened for a little bit. i thought it was neat being there because i am part polish.
hours passed and it was now time to start walking back to the union station to catch our 5:30 pm train back home to michigan. on our walk over, we were curious as to why there were so many roads blocked off. we kept walking and started to notice video cameras being set up and a lot of cop cars. we came to a point where there were a bunch of people rallying. it was a rally against the immigration law in arizona. steve and i stood and watched it for a while. it was such an amazing thing to see. being in chicago, and coming from a small town, i was exposed to so many things that i used to only see on t.v.
it was an amazing trip, and i am so happy to call chicago my future home! i can't wait to move there in august!
