Because we lived with friends in a small town near Chicago, we all went out for a trip.

The weather was not the best, so on the way we would see the skyscrapers of the big city. Even after we arrived in Chicago, we could not see the heights of most of the skyscrapers because they were covered in fog or clouds.

After passing through the city, we parked at Adler Planetarium and paid an incredible $22 for it. From here we went to the beach of Lake Michigan, whose water was really cold, but there were still sailing boats. On the way to the center, we stopped at the Karel Havlíček Monument and continued on the path around the Shedd Aquarium to the Buckingham Memorial Fountain, abbreviated as Buckingham Fountain, located at Grant Park. At that point, some of the skyscrapers have already been visible.

We reached E Jackson Blvd to the Willis Tower building, which is 442 meters high, the second tallest building in the US, and up to the year 1998 was the world’s tallest building for 25 years.

Above the city streets run railroad tracks, where trains run over the heads of people.

In addition, our steps led us to Millenium Park, where many concerts take place. On the way, we stopped at Crown Fountain and Cloud Gate (known as The Bean).
