was that I was staying at my cousin's apartment and he didn't have any time off. I may have been able to get around more if I'd had access to a car and GPS, but since I didn't I was pretty much stuck there until he got home.
Some days I did have friends pick me up and we'd go out and do something, but on this particular day I had no such luck. I told myself that it would be OK because that way I would stay in and get a lot of work done. Unfortunately, I was having one of those mornings where I can't seem to focus, and I ended up on facebook. As it turned out my new friend Dave was also home, off for the 4th of July holiday, and was apparently about as amused as I was.
Long story short, Dave and I ended up going to lunch and then I finally got a chance to explore downtown Chicago. I will skip the silly details of walking around and go straight to the pictures!
If only I'd had one of these I could have left the apartment! :P
I could spend hours taking pictures of The Bean.
This little guy reminds me of the Guggenheim Museum of Bilbao, back home.
BTW, Lake Michigan is not like an Ocean. Just sayin'...
I fell in love with the trains, like in "While You Were Sleeping" :)
Very talkative street performers.
Dave thank you so much for taking me out on this walk! :)
