I arrived in Chicago last night after a long day of flights and the unbelievable chore that was the Newark airport passport control. It took so long to get through it that I almost missed my connection. I barely made it, but I know I’m going to try to avoid that airport for connections from now on.
I was pretty exhausted after all of the travel yesterday but managed to have a wander around for a little while and find somewhere to get a few beers and a Kobe Burger with Truffle Fries – it was pretty damned good. After the food, beer, and the fact that with the time difference my body thought it was 6am there’s was nothing to do but head back to the apartment and get some sleep.
My body clock is all over the place at the moment though, so I didn’t sleep that well and finally gave up trying at around 6.30am this morning. The plus point of that is I got to see the skyline of Chicago from the balcony of the apartment I’m staying at in the early morning.
I haven’t really seen much the city yet other than the amazing view from the apartment, that’s the job for the next few days, but I can say that there’s something about Chicago that I already really like.
I’ve sat indoors today too long. I’m off to explore.
