After a short four hour drive we were in Chicago, known as the Windy City we must have planned it right because all we got was sun.
We got our first taste of American sport when we went to see the Chicago White Sox. Equipped with my rounders knowledge I learned when I was at junior School i felt prepared. I really enjoyed the baseball although I did think they would score more homeruns than they did and hit the ball more as well. Their best player got a massive round of applause before he went on and would have been justified if he actually managed to hit the ball
we couldn't go to chicago without going up the 1300ft observation deck of the Willis tower. The observation deck offers some stunning views of Chicago and also had a see through cubicle which hangs you over the edge 103 floors up. It was a pretty cool experience the first stop was a bit weird but once I was on the glass looking down it was fine. Thankfully the glass was pretty thick and needed to be after all the burgers I have been eating.
We then had a walk around Millennium park and saw the famous bean which is a giant stainless steel sculpture which was engineered and constructed by of course a company based in Britain.
While we were walking away from Millennium park we saw that a road was closed and loads of people were gathered around waiting for something to happen. We investigated and it turned out that they were filming for Transformers 4 which was pretty cool they allowed us to take some pictures of the cars but unfortunately no video was allowed.
Navy park was pretty cool packed fool of restaurants, shops, bars and a fairest wheel. We stopped of for a couple of beers at one of the bars and the lovely barmaid brought us both a drink which was nice must be our English accents.
