First Month in Chicago!
Grant Park was the first stop for Norman and Shindu as they attended the Tastes of Chicago, an annual culinary festival that celebrates the city’s diverse culinary selections. There are hundreds of restaurants, stands, and various other kinds of food vendors from all over the Windy City. They also got to taste some Tamales and Paletas popsicles, which are authentic Mexican foods.
Another Chicago landmark that they visit was the Museum of Science and Industry. The museum, the second largest science museum in the western hemisphere, is home to an extensive collection of exhibits. It houses more than 2,000 of them! Norman and Shindu got the chance to see a German World War II submarine, the U-505 and attend the exhibition on the United States’ space program from time to time. They had a great time here as they think that the museum is very interactive for visitors from children to adults.
