Happy 4th of July!
This is going to be my last post on my US vacation...
... I wanted to show you a little bit around Chicago since I really think that this city is my new favorite in the US. In general I think small towns are more fun and intersting compared to the big cities but if I would have to choose a big city, I would pick Chicago! People are friendly, its clean, the architecture is amazinglz beautiful and there is a huge variety in styles and epoches and the different neighboorhoods all have their own charme and "personality".
I also loved the fact that there is so much water in the city and that Lake Michigan is so close - there you can always go for a walk and relax, or visit the Navy Pier which is somehow a lot of fun even though its very touristic. The Millenium Park is great too and there is a free zoo in Chicago and a lot of other beautiful greens spaces where you can escape from the hectic of the city.
If you ever get the chance, you should definetly visit this beautiful city!
By the way, I am sorry I was absent for the last week. I had visits from two very dear friends and their requested all my time and concentration ;-) it was really really nice to have them here and to show them around my city. Yesterday then, I actually went to Berlin to get the last things done for the bureaucratic part of the wedding. To get married in Germany is somehow a little stressful since you need to get so many papers done and register at different places and stuff. Anyhow, now this is done too and I can enjoy my weeeeeeeekend :)
Hope you all had a great week! Have a most wonderful weekend and to my American friends and followers: Enjoy 4th of July!
