The American Business Experience (ABE) included a trip to Chicago. Janita Anthony shares the journey:
“Chicago” that was something which brought a smile on everybody’s face. Everyone was super excited on the thought of going to the “Windy City”. Though the excitement was on a high, the very thought of leaving St. Ambrose University which had been our home for almost four weeks was saddening. None of us wanted to leave the university and go back home.
We reached Chicago on the 16th June at around 11 in the morning. We were
staying at the Hyatt Place. We then set out to explore the city. First, we went to the Shedd Aquarium but unfortunately we could not get in to the huge queue and our time constraints. So, we took a boat and went to Navy Pier. There we sat in the ferris wheel and merry go round. Later, we went to the Willis Tower which is a great attraction in Chicago. It gave us the most beautiful view of the city ever and we all loved being on the 103rd floor and it was indeed an amazing experience. On the second day we went to
Michigan Avenue. That whole day we spent only shopping. We went to the mall as well as the stores on the street.
And then it was time for us to leave the beautiful city. We all loved the place so much that none of us wanted to go back home to India which was quite surprising. We still have all those lovely memories with us!
