I arrived this morning in Chicago around 9am their time…not mine. Therefore, my time was kinda screwed up in my head, but it’s becoming easier. I’ve been awake since 2:30, and running on only 2 hours of sleep is intense! But I’m loving this. Darrell picked me up from the airport at around 9:15, and he drove me back to the hostel where I got to chill out for about 45 minutes, get on Facebook, and just relax. After that, I went with Darrell to go and pick up 2 more people from the airport, Joe and Sam. Joe is going to England and Sam is going to Paraguay. Afterwards, Joe, Sam, and I walked around Chicago for a bit, found an amazing place to eat called Potbelly, and bonded over fantastic sandwiches. As of right now, I’m helping Joe set up a blog and eating peach rings: the life.
So far, this experience is amazing and it’s only day one. I’m not homesick yet, but I’m sure that will come within time. I can’t wait to update everyone!
