From New York to Chicago – 2 Aug 09

United States of America

Yesterday I already told you that we would start early to Chicago. And it was very early. At 3:45 am the airport shuttle was there to pick us up and we said goodbye to Jeremy. I don’t know how many times I have already written, that it is sad to say goodbye. We really enjoyed the time in New York with Suann and Jeremy.

In Chicago we were welcomed by Shayna and so it is always like this: you are sad when saying goodbye but there are many hellos, too. And we will be back in New York in September. I got very nice response to the last day’s diary entries and I hope that some people will change their habits and begin living in a healthier way. It is anyway the best to cook your food yourself instead of eating readymade. We went shopping today to get all our ingredients for the wonderful meal that we cooked in the evening. It was very delicious. Now we are tired after this long day and will go to bed soon.

Food, Goodbye, Travelling
