Hooray, Chicago! Chicago is a 5-hour drive away from us and one of the best cities I have visited so far. We had requested a "parent permission day" and left early (as early as the German Hadys can roll out of bed) Friday morning. Kids in the States can be excused from school by their parents for ten days per school year. Neat. I felt like cheating when I wrote a paper slip saying "because we want to go Chicago", so I added "to visit the Field Museum and the Shedd Aquarium" (which was true!). We were warned of crime and gangsters by the Gays Mills folks...:-). Surprisingly many people here in Gays have never been to Chicago.Many have farms and need to take care of the cows.

The date is drawing closer... We'll be heading to the US in four weeks! Let the adventure begin. I will use this blog to let colleagues and friends know what we are up to. I will try to post one photo every week that shows some cultural differences...
