Day 2
It's very cold at the moment in Chicago so we decided to venture out to the local Aquarium, Shedd Aquarium. It has exhibitions including whales, dolphins exhotic fish and Matts fave hahaha giant spiders. We got there just in time to watch the Dolphin show, five dolphins performing jumps and tricks. After leaving we had to wait for a very long time, probably an hour for a cab in the freazing cold, made worse by the fact we were surrounded by lake Michigan. We decided to defrost and order in dinner - it's very different here you can get anything delivered any time of day. They have a service that will go to a resaurant of your choice and pick up your meal for a small fee.

Day 3
Today we had to check out, we had also got tickets to the Jerry Springer show, after checking out we walked the short distance to the NBC studio, we waited about 2 hours to be seated and introduced to Jerry. It was great fun. He is actually very comical, more like a stand up comedian. The guests were unusual as expected, the first was a return guest, a trans-sexual who was married on the show a few months earlier and needed to confront her new husband about dressing like a woman and andvertising services on the internet. The next guest were a couple who had each been to prision and each had cheated with thir male next door neighbour, the show included lots of nudity (including some audience members wanting Jerry beads) and fighting which was hilarious. Very funny. We also got to shake Jerry's hand.

After the show we walked out to find it snowing, we walked around the city looking for somewhere to eat, we had typical Chicago/ italian food then walked to the Hertz rental arriving just in time to pick up our car for our drive to  Waukegan - about 2 hours out of the city.
