A year later, I visited Clara again in Chicago where she attends Columbia College. She lived close to the downtown area in the Loop, and this was my first real taste of a big city. The wind was so strong at night that it often would blow my legs around under me. We went to the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum, saw "Rent" and watched the Propellerheads perform.
Last summer, I went to New York with my friend Sophia, who I met in a journalism class my freshman year. Three years later we are the best of friends and still struggling through journalism classes. It's something both of us always wanted to do. We loved it. New York City is huge. There is so much to see and do. We saw "Miss Saigon," Times Square, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, the World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, Central Park, the Guggenheim Museum, West Point and Chinatown.
Whew! We did so much. At this point in my traveling career, I am finally learning how to do as much as someone can possibly do in one week. Here are Sophia and me on Sixth Avenue. When we were in New York, these cows were all over the city with different designs on them. We later learned that they were part of an artistic statement that we never quite understood.
