I’m going to the zoo today for the first time in over a decade. Lincoln Park Zoo is pretty awesome, at least from what I remember of it. Not only do they have the monkeys, the pandas and the penguins, but also farm animals. It’s the midwest; you can’t go 10 miles without seeing a farm animal. lol.
Anyhoo, I think that’s about all that’s going on today–although we may stop at the Field Museum or something like that. The Field Museum, to me, isn’t as kewl as the Museum of Science & Industry. Things don’t change there, as much–you have dinosaurs instead of all of that state-of-the-art-geek-paradise stuff 🙂
Yesterday, we went to MSI and also Navy Pier. Navy Pier is always a must to visit; it’s definitely a good place to hang out. MSI had a really kewl exhibit about the human body. Basically, they had human bodies on display in various forms. Most of them were partial skeletons, illustrating the circulatory, nervous and musculature systems. They even had pregnant women on display. Either way, It’s a pretty interesting way to donate your body to science when ya don’t need it anymore.
In the evening, we took a Ghost Tour of Chicago. They told all kinds of stories, from back when Chicago settlers in Ft. Dearborn were massacred to Resurrection Mary. And they took us around to all the places where the people in the stories died.
