I've been here just for a few days and it feels like i have been here for a long time. Truly, that is how i feel inside. I crave for more of this. The ambience of europe is what i've always thought it to be and more!
However, before all that, Chicago was worth mentioning. I lived in a hostel in Fullerton, a little up north of the city. It was a lovely place, very much like the victorian village back in columbus ohio. Apparently, it was the richer area of town, that and because it was burned down during the big chicago fire and that there was a children's memorial hospital nearby. I'm told that the area north of chicago had a large glbt community. That should be true... since there was a glbt parade the very next day!
Met a mexican there that was there solely for the reason of selling football tickets (a guy in my room was there just for the game). His name was Hosea (yeah....hmmm..... & yes i know its spelt Jose). He was telling me about whores in eastern europe and such.. i wonder if he really came here before? or he was just telling stories about things he heard in hostels such as the one we were living in?
A bit of advice for everyone: McDonalds is a very reliable place to find a public restroom!
No more time! Internet is expensive! Right now i can't decide where to go next. Weather over here is horrile at the moment!!! Its not summer in europe at all!!
