Today I spent the day at the Field Museum - a Chicago institution and set up as a result of the World's Fair held there in 1893, more or less.
A lot of the exhibits weren't worth carting home, and assorted Chicagoans managed to convince people that purchasing them and then displaying them would be a 'good idea' ... since then, the Museum has gone from strength to strength.
And, yes, there is enough to keep you interested for a whole ...
... drunk Americans and Guatemalans. Eventually had to leave them to get ready for a night out. Met up with a couple of girls that we met last night, went to have pizza with them at one of Chicago's famous deep crust pizza restaurants called Giogandi's. Some of the best pizza I've ever had. Back at the hostel, had some drinks with some more girls that were staying there. Met Josh's old intern Steph, who joined. Went out to a couple of crazy dive ...
... and Telescopes and early astronomers etc we saw two interesting films, one about the Galaxy and how our tiny (Flat!) Earth fits in and the mind boggling distances involved, and the other about all the scrap metal that is flying around in space and the significance of it.
We then headed off to the nearby Aquarium which has not only interesting species of fish but also sea lions, seal, ducks and - believe it or not - Beluga Whales. ...
... saw several bald eagles. Light snow on the ground persisting well into Illinois.
Arrived 3 hours late into Chicago Union Station, had a rude taxi driver with no GPS. Settled into our apartment, then rugged up and waddled down to the grocery shop for some healthy food, but it wasn't up to my standards. The boys arrived about 3.30am, their train from Seattle was 9 hours late. Stayed up talking till after 6.
... the extras were fresh and very tasty. They also had the little round, red, packaged cheeses so I was very happy.
- Z and P had the Irish Breakfast (English, Scottish or Irish, lots of pork products)
- M had pancakes (almost crepes) with fruit
- C had waffles
- all the fruit, bread, pastries, cheese, oatmeal you could want
