Hey US-Ayyyy!

I am here in the States, and it’s turning out to be a better experience than I had been looking forward to. We arrived here on the 14th of this month and although it took me around five days to fight away my jet leg, I am too happy to complain about anything right now.

We began the trip from Purdue (West Lafayette) with my brother’s graduation ceremony, and I instantly fell in love with the laid back, calm pace of the area and the unending charm of the hospitable people there.

The four days there were great and after a night’s rest following the Spring Commencement, we drove over to Chicago and though the pace of this city is not strikingly fast, it’s still a huge step up from the calm of West Lafayette, and somehow the contrast is just as much charming as it’s enjoyable.

The Sky Ledge on Sears, the Millenium Park, the Navy Pier, the Riverside Walk-all of them typical tourist spots and none of them even slightly disappointing. From taking selfies with roadside musicians, to capturing graffiti and true love on camera, to having coffee every other hour and sharing the experience with strangers-till now the experience has been nothing short of lovely.

Let’s hope that the East coast doesn’t disappoint us in the future either.
Looking forward to more adventures,
Yours forever,
Gull.
