Baseball

The baseball match two days ago was great!
We had very good seats and the environment was amazing. It’s very different from the football matches in my country. I was surprised because people didn’t shout all time; there were music and lights instead.
Each time one team changed the batter (the majority of them latin) there was a video played on the screen introducing him. When for example a player called Alejandro scored a home-run the sound was Gaga’s song “Ale Alejandro”, and so on.

 

Even more surprisingly for me was the division of the field, I had always thought the running area was bigger but it didn’t live up to my expectations as it only takes a quarter part. (They didn’t run very much either)

We didn’t get any ball but I could meet the mascot and a friend took me a photo.

 

My meal there consisted on nachos, chicken, lettuce, cheese and souce, all inside a baseball helmet 🙂

The match lasted more than 3h (we didn’t get bored) and the result was Yankees 18 – 7 WhiteSox

Museums

Classes hasn’t barely changed, which is in fact a good thing.
We have a new Spanish boy and the Vietnamese students are leaving this week.

 

These days I’ve been feeding my cultural interests and, since Chicago is known for its culture, I’ve visited a couple of museums in the city. They are: Art Institute of Chicago and Contemporary Art Museum.

The best thing is that I could enter for free. It is supposed to have free admission only for residents – and specific days, of course – but you know, begging a little or saying that you’re gonna leave helps.

In my opinion the Art Insitute is better than the second I’ve just mentioned because it is by far the largest one. Actually it reminds me of The British Museum. You can find art from cultures all around the world, from a Picasso to a Japanese kimono.

 

 

I haven’t finished yet. I don’t want to make you feel jealous but I’ve tickets for tonight baseball match WhiteSox vs. Yankees.

Let’s go Yank…sorry, let’s go WhiteSox!
