Day 4

Friedman Acceptability Measure: N/A

With Friedman out of the way, I was able to kick up my heels and celebrate. I woke up at 11, and spent the next few hours trying to find the car, which held my change of clothes among other things. Then I spent an hour trying to find Michigan Ave, a difficult task which I ultimately bested. I ducked into a mall to avoid getting soaked during a sun-shower, and ended up staying in their guest lounge with free internet for some time. Ian and Becca and I ate dinner at a Cuban BYOB restaurant.

Really the only notable thing that happened all day was the tour of Millennium Park. Here is a picture I took at night, with a 5-second exposure time (it was quite dark out), of "The Bean," an aptly nicknamed sculpture in the park. Apparently the artist claims any pictures of the reflection as his own property...

After the park, we enjoyed drinks at my favourite hotel, the Monaco. I stayed there a few years ago when I went on a trip with my mom and brother.

What Cuban restaurant? If it is the one I'm thinking of, I LOVE that place!

I believe that visiting a Whole Foods in any major city is a blogworthy event.....

The Cuban place is like 6 months old, and in some really sketchy place...that's all i know.

And yes, Whole Foods was epic, I drank "blueberry acai" juice, which is unusually high in anti-oxidents, and I also ate a value-pack size tuna sushi box.
