Having been in Chicago for just over a month, I was starting to think that the United States is all about these amazing glass structures and chaotic city traffic. I was fascinated when I got to visit an 1890s farm in the suburb of Wheaton, Illinois. Thanks to Bridges International for taking us on a super awesome field trip to this living museum.

Having traveled from India to Chicago for over 26 hours on multiple flights, I was super tired and jet-lagged. It took a couple of days for me to recover and adapt to the time difference, but then I started missing India, the spicy food, noisy traffic, vibrant colors, and most of all, the people. That’s when I pulled out my phone and started to search for the nearest restaurant, also I needed a couple of Indian spices, so I needed a store that sells Indian groceries, that is how I found out about Devon Avenue, also called Little India.

As an international student, I am excited to see such a good transportation system in Chicago. The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) comes under the Regional Transport Authority (RTA), which is the second largest metropolitan transport service in the United States after New York. It connects almost forty suburbs and the city of Chicago. It has almost 2,000 buses which get connected to 3,000 km (or just under 2,000 miles) of the city's roadways. The world's busiest airport is the O'Hare International airport. To reach the airport from downtown, the CTA Blue Line provides a rapid transit which is approximately 40 minutes from the Loop.

Chicago’s airplane and water show was conducted once a year by the United State’s Navy Blue Angels. This is a two day event conducted on August 21 and August22 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. This is one of the free events conducted once a year. The best viewing experience of the show is between Oak Street and Fullerton Avenue. Due to Covid-19 this show was cancelled last year 2020, even though United State’s Navy Blue angels conducted the show to honour the healthcare workers who are fighting the covid-19 pandemic. Believe me you will be having an amazing experience in the lakefront view during these two days.

Chicago's 18 mile Lakefront Trail is one of the best paths for marathon runners all over the world. It is divided into three sections named North, South, and Middle. This 18 mile trail includes volleyball courts, beaches, and playgrounds. Also the road is very good for runners as well as bikers. For much of the trail, it has separate lanes for both the runners and bicycles, so people don't need to worry about accidents. During weekends people are diving into the beach, conducting parties, and having lots of fun events. You could also see Chicago's 2021 Air and Water Show from the lakefront as well!
