I rode into Chicago last night on the MegaBus and dropped my bags off at Ben's place. We went out and walked around his neighborhood. The streets were lined with bars and it had apparently been a game day so the place was packed. We settled in at a bar for a while and I had a couple glasses of really foamy Guiness.
It turned out that Ben's roomate was headed to the airport today and since my hotel is directly North of O'Hare he offered to take me here on his way. His sister came and picked us up and I got here at 11:00am, local time.
I found the place to leave my bags and sat down at a table with some fellow JETs. Its nice that the hotel has free wireless internet access.
Pre-Departure Orientation is up next in a little bit. Should be interesting
