Aug 8, Monday
Arrived at Chicago at 1 AM after an hour and a half delay. Stayed at Miao’s place with Gaelle. Got up around 9:30 AM and went out for breakfast with Carmen and Jose at Yolk in Streeterville. Since Jose has to go on a business trip in the morning, I had to see him before the dinner. Good time and good food then Carmen I walked around the beautiful city of Chicago for little bit. Also stopped by at Cindy’s rooftop for a drink and see a beautiful view to Millennium park and the lake. Took a bus back to Miao’s and went on a skating with Gaelle on lake trail.
Such a beautiful day to skate. We skated to Ohio beach and it was amazing! I really missed this trail and the beautiful weather in summer time chi. It was also nice to have a good friend with me to skate! We got back after an hour and I helped her shipping a box to France. Miao came back to home then we headed out to Gold Coast for Gaelle’s farewell dinner.
It was so nice to see most of my favorite people again. Always love to see all my Chicago family. It’s so sad that Gaelle has to leave but we all know it won’t be the last time we all see each other. Had a great time with everyone with deep dish pizza. We all stayed there till 10 PM then some of us went to hookah place in Lakeview. I felt really tired but managed to stay to the end. Ended up at Miao’s with Gaelle and finally went to bed around 2 AM.
I’m so glad that I made to Chicago to say good bye to Gaelle and see my best friends. Although I felt exhausted, it was totally worth it. Great day in Chicago!
