Chicago thus far

Chicago, United States

Heya, this is Sunil in Chicago. I've been badgered into writing a blog, just so you know we're alive and well. Well, i'm alive and well at least, Liz has been ill, drunk and scared so far, but we'll come onto that. I'm not quite sure when the last post was, but we got to Chicago on Monday after an immense 18 hour train journey, which i thought was great mainly due to sleeping for 12 hours. Liz didnt enjoy it so much and suffered from leg cramp (a common complaint ive come to find).
Anyway we didnt do a great deal apart from get fed and watered amazingly (thanks Chrystalo, Katerina and George) until Thursday which was Chrystalo's birthday. Liz proceeded to get drunk in true British fashion, mainly due to playing 'Never have i ever..' and SOMEONE having to drink a hell of a lot more than anyone else, anyhoo, Liz ended up asleep on the floor refusing to sleep in the airbed.
Not to worry, i managed to drag her onto the airbed in the end (so now i'm complaining of back cramps as a result)
Anyway on Friday, Andrea, myself and a hungover Liz went to one of the best haunted houses in the USA. The scene was perfectly set as we went late at night in the middle of a huge thunderstorm. The pessimist in me might say we paid to get completely soaked while queueing for two hours and get scared shitless, but i actually found it hilarious. Mainly due to every zombie, monster and demon in the house jumping out and attacking Liz while she hid behind my back for the whole thing. This caused her to go white as a sheet, and she's now refuses to ever go to a haunted house again.
Tonight i've been informed we're going to a 'hookah' bar (assuming it's spelt like that and not 'hooker'), and in the morning going to watch Liverpool do one on the Chelsea scum, so woohoo!!
Anyway, i'm not sure that Liz will let me write the blog again, so bye for now. Hope it's raining back home and everyone is alright.

Hi Liz, it sounds like you had as much scary fun as you did when that little midget ran out at you and when that BIG statue bent down infront of us in 'The Mummy'in Universal Studio's! If only you could have taken pics! Hope all is well, keep up the fun and games! Love Snail x x x
