WHAT I REALLY LIKE ABOUT CHICAGO IN GENERAL IS IT REMINDS ME OF HOME IN MANY WAYS. I'VE LIVED IN BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND, FOR MOST OF MY LIFE. THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE BIRMINGHAM IS THAT IT'S NOT LONDON. IT'S A BIG CITY BUT DOESN'T HAVE THE OVERCROWDED NATURE OF LONDON OR NEW YORK.


I HATE BEING A TOURIST. I REALLY DO. WHEN I GO TO A NEW CITY I LIKE TO FEEL PART OF IT EVEN IF I'M ONLY THERE FOR A SHORT TIME. THE FIRST TIME IN CHICAGO I AVOIDED DOING TOO MANY TOURISTY THINGS. YEAH, I SAW THE BIG BEAN THING AND SOME OTHER BUILDINGS BUT, TO ME, THAT ISN'T AT ALL INTERESTING.

I WANT TO MEET THE PEOPLE/THE NATIVES AND KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO LIVE IN THE CITY AND THAT'S SOMETHING YOU CAN'T GET BY FOLLOWING A TOURIST GUIDE.

THANKS TOO R00S I WAS STAYING WITH ONE OF THE ORGANISERS OF GLI.TC/H, NICK. AS THIS WAS THE FIRST AMERICAN HOUSE I'D SPENT ANY TIME IN I COULDN'T REALLY SAY IF IT WAS A TYPICAL AMERICAN HOUSE. EITHER WAY, IT WAS A PRETTY NICE PLACE, ALTHOUGH THE ONLY TIME I WAS AT HIS HOUSE WAS TO SLEEP AND SHOWER. ANY PLACE THAT HAS CATS GETS MY APPROVAL INSTANTLY.


I SPENT

I AVE DON'T T H IN K WHILS

ALL OF THE DAYS SORT OF MERGED INTO ONE. THEY ALL SEEMED TO START WITH A TRIP DOWNTOWN, WANDERING AROUND FOR A BIT IN SEARCH OF FOOD, DOING ONE OF THE GLI.TC/H THINGS AND THEN ENDING IT IN A PARTY SOMEWHERE. DON'T BE ALARMED THAT I WOULD DRINK ABOUT FIVE CANS IN A NIGHT AS THEY WERE THE SIZE OF A

COKE CAN. THAT BEING SAID I PROBABLY DID EMBARRASS MYSELF ON VARIOUS OCCASIONS. HOPEFULLY MY BRITISH CHARM (HA!) MADE UP FOR IT. SMALL


IS CHICAGO KNOWN FOR ITS PIZZAS? IF NOT IT DEFINITELY SHOULD BE. MYSELF AND JEFF DON HAD A PIZZA THE SIZE OF TEN PIZZAS CONDENSED INTO ONE SMALL PIZZA.

YES, IT WAS A SMALL

PIZZA. IT LASTED ME THREE DAYS BY WHICH POINT I HAD TO THROW IT OUT BECAUSE IT WAS GOING GREENISH. I THINK IF I'M EVER IN

CHICAGO AGAIN I'LL JUST BUY ONE PIZZA AND LIVE OFF IT FOREVER.
