Just follow the flow of the city. CHICAGO. After taking the kids on a boat trip we walked around town and ended up for a break at Millenium Park. Who’s that guy on stage… ? I like that voice. I really like his music …. Glen Hansard on stage for his rehearsal. We ve seen Glen a couple of months earlier in Las Vegas and no doubt that my husband and I joined in for the free night concert at Millenium Park. Awesome show!
We stayed Downtown at the Springhill Suites Marriott, great walking distance to well-known shopping paradise Magnificent Mile. Our first walk took us early morning to the Austrian embassy to pick up my sons passport and to apply for our Au Pairs Visa. Another journey we have taken on …. we were looking for someone to join us in Austria starting in August. I ll write more about our experience to hire an Au Pair from the US some other day.
Another day and no huge plans: from coffee, to a free tour at one of Chicago’s fire station, walking through the famous AMERICAN GIRL store …. we just simply inhaled the smell, sound and taste of Chicago before we packed one more time ………to head to the Wells Fargo Bank and quit our American Bank Account …..
