Our second day of sight-seeing is over, and I am exhausted! It feels like we have been here a week (we’ve been grocery shopping twice already), but we haven’t even started our service work yet – that starts at 8am tomorrow! I am looking forward to it. I enjoyed seeing the city before starting at the site – we were able to get an understanding of the city.

Today, we went to Navy Pier, which houses many stores and restaurants on Lake Michigan. It even has a small amusement park out on the pier, which is closed in the winter. I would love to come back here in the summer and see the city from the top of the Ferris Wheel! We also went to the Chicago History Museum, which was very interesting, and then we went to get some REAL Chicago-style deepdish pizza at “Gino’s East”.  We were starving by the time we got there, and stuffed by the time we left. The pizza did not disappoint.  The restaurant was also great – the walls were decorated with graffiti left by the patrons. It seemed like every surface was covered, but ASB Chicago found a space to leave their mark!  

We then made our second grocery-stop to stock up for the rest of the week and now it is time to rest up for our first day of service tomorrow!
