Living Chicago

Last summer has changed me in a way I couldn’t have imagined. I lived an intercultural experience that I’ll never forget. The people I met in EF Chicago filled a small but also huge piece of my heart and I learned much more than a language.

If you ask me if I would repeat I say: OF COURSE! And I’m certain I will.

 

 

Such thoughts make me miss Chicago a lot so I leave you with the second video:

 

Never think twice and go for it!


Back to the roads

Hi bloggers!

The activity never stops, even two months after I left the city.

 

The experience there was so deep that I still have many of things to think about and photos to show you.

My latest purpose has been focused on letting you feel what I felt.

 

I’ve made two stopmotion videos which describe life in Chicago, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it 😀

Here comes the first one:

You can be a part of this great adventure!


Sweet home

Hi bloggers! I’m in my country now and it’s more difficult to post cause everything has changed and my point of view is very different from here but I want to take profit of this situation.

 

First af all I’ve been uploading my Flickr, which you can find at the right column.

There you can find not only interesting new photos but also – in my opinion, you know – good explanations about the places I’ve been to, the people I met etc.

I’m only able to upload 300Mb a month (and a maximum of 200 photos)  so I have to prepare a very small selection (I don’t like it).

 

On the other hand I’m planning to open a new page (like the other one, “About“, where you can enter and read why I started this blog). There I will tell you important facts and all kind of useful things about Chicago (and EF also).
So check it out soon!


Last days

This week I’ve been too busy to post regularly because I’m leaving on Sunday and I didn’t want to miss anything about this great city, but I will finish to tell you all my experience as soon as I arrive home.

Bye Bye Chicago Bye bye Chicago!

 

Now I’m going to prepare some postcards I’ve to send to Spain and read a rolling paper from my classmates saying goodbye :$.

The experience doesn’t finish here!!


Willis Tower

If you have the chance to stay in Chicago you MUST visit the Willis Tower, or most commonly used “The Sears Tower“.

It is not surprising that it’s one of the most important icons of the city. Standing at 1,450 feet (500 m) and 110 stories (floors) its skydeck welcomes 3 million visitors every year.


Raining

You have always to be prepared for a chance of rain in this city.

My days here are coming to an end and I need clear days to do all the things I want to!


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
