yeah have arrived in the USA

CHICAGO

semi-overcast

Hi everyone. From the windy city of Chicago . At the moment not very windy . I arrived yesterday . Was met at the airport. My flight went smoothly.was taken on a car tour of downtown Chicago. The avenue were amazing. Just like five avenue in new York but less busy. I looked up from the car roof and all you can see is high sky scrapers. We went past the Illinois river I think that's what's it's called its runs through Chicago, the bridge was up to let in a boat. We also went past the United center where the Chicago bulls play. Unfortunately Adam Michael Jordan has retired however we did go past a Michael Jordan steak house. Then we had dinner in a Mexican place. It was yum. But still getting used to the portions sizes here which are big. Must remember to order quarter of a appetizer. Otherwise the weight will pile on. No plans for this morning. Might get L train to o hare airport. Next stop Chicago seems amazing I wish I had more time to spend here. Next stop New Orleans.

Lovely to read of your exploits Alix! Sorry you didn't get into the restaurant but never mind -least you had a cocktail there! Do hope you've now met up with the rest of the tour. Don't worry if there's not immediately a kindred spirit as you're with them less than two weeks. As long as you're cheerful Nd enthusiastic ,people will gravitate to you....
Enjoy the next stage of the trip.
BTW Wendy Jongejan tells me that Kontiki was set up in NZ to make sure NZ and Oz young travelers had a safe experience, which I find reassuring... Hope there are a few more of your age too.
