Admittedly, my technique for finding the place I’m staying when travelling to a rather large city I’ve never been to before will not always be the most reliable. However, taking the train in and walking in any direction until I find a Starbucks where I take advantage of the free WiFi to look up my coordinates has worked for me thus far.
I rolled in at about 10am this morning, walked one block in an arbitrarily picked direction, found a Starbucks, and here I am. When I’m done with this post I’m going to walk over to my hostel, shower, nap, then explore a little until Ben gets here. And we will adventure the city together.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have arrived in Chicago.
