A catch up from the last few weeks!!

Chicago, United States

Ok so admittedly I havent used this thing like at all since I arrived in Chicago...and I probably had the most time and free internet so not really any excuses...so I'm not actually going to bother to make any. So Sunil filled you in on Chrystalo's Birthday celebrations and the haunted house (which WAS petrifying) so I'll just add the few other memorable things we did, and I guess there arent so many as we just chilled most of the time! I guess the night we went to Greektown followed by Madonna night at a club called Berlin was pretty memorable...at least to the others... I remember surprisingly little of it and woke up with a bump to the head and various other bruises! The morning after swearing never to drink again (this obviously has already been broken). I guess I struggle to remember so well the Chicago leg of the trip since I had done it all before so didnt really sightsee just had good fun with old friends. The one thing I have to mention is Obama. We went down to Grant Park where he was making his speech (right opposite my old university) at about 4.30pm after failing to get tickets, we just thought we would look around. It was crazy even four hours before he was due to appear with more people than I have ever seen in downtown Chicago. Unfortunately we couldnt get close as you can imagine the security was insane. So I watched the evenings events on TV with some friends a few beers and a takeaway before heading to a bar to toast to the new president elect! What a win for Obama...now lets (or the americans) overturn proposition 8!!
