christmas in chicago

my first christmas away from home was...weird. it didn't feel like christmas, but spending it with my best friend, jessica, made it feel more like home. plus, chicago was pretty awesome! it was beautiful, enchanting, and i didn't get mugged! we went to chinatown, ate chicago deep dish pizza (not in china town) (mmm...1 inch of melted cheese...which promptly made me sick...soooooo good), went to the lincoln park zoo, and to the field museum and the art institute of chicago.

here are some pictures of a monkey, a roaring lion that would not be fun to cage fight, a mummy, and a moche pot.we lived, we ate, we traveled via bus, train, & taxi, and we lived to tell the tale. look at how contented jessica is!i hope everyone was/is having a wonderful holiday!


  1. I'm so glad you had a good time and that the Grinch didn't steal your Christmas.

  2. Did you get sassed at? Cause it's not a trip to Chicago if you don't (of maybe that's New Jersey...)
