In the afternoon we went shopping and discovered the beautiful city.
At the end of the day we had our last dinner together in a delicious pizzeria next to our hotel... after that we had to pack.
In the next morning we visited the Navy Pier and bought souvenirs for our familiy or friends. Then we went to the airport and started our long trip back home.

Today was our first real day in Chicago. We left our hotel at 8.30 am to visit the museum of science and industry. It was very impressing and we could try lots of things on our own. The topics that you can see in the museum are very manifold. We also saw a film about the journey to space there which was also very impressing.
After about two hours in the museum we went to Willis Tower, a huge skyscraper where you can go on one of the top levels and have a lovely view over Chicago. After many pictures were taken up there we had a lot of free time to go shopping or just relax in the city.
After this exciting day we returned to our hotel in the evening.

The first thing we did on Sunday was saying goodbye to our host families because we were leaving to spend a few days in Chicago before going back to Germany.
After arriving in our hotel we got on the bus again to take some pictures at Lake Michigan and to visit the Hancock Tower for a lock at the skyline of Chicago.
One hand it was sad leaving our host families, but on the other hand it was nice spending some time in a big and impressive city like Chicago.

We anwered a lot of questions, talked about our home-country Germany and watched the everyday-life of the kids.
In the afternoon, some of my friends and me enjoied a late lunch buffet at Pizza Ranch and after that, visited the last Football game of the season. Unfortunetly our team, the Comets, lost.
After returning home, I already started packing some of my belongings for the trip to chicago and for the journey back to Germany.

Every Wednesday, school starts one hour later than normally so we had the chance to sleep one more hour this morning. After a normal school day from 9:10am-3:10pm I drove to Leonie and her host Jenna because we had planned to make pumpkins. For us Germans, Leonie and Me, it was the first time making pumpkins just because of the reason that Halloween isn't that popular in Germany. But even if was the first time for us, we were not too bad, I think...
