New York - Springfield - Chicago

Posted by Martina Mohrbacher -

Right on the first day Laura and I bought unlimited tickets for one day and began our adventure in Manhattan just with a map in hand. Almost all the buildings are q...

More from Ya

Posted by Martina Mohrbacher -

I'm very sorry that I haven't kept the blog updated since we left Champaign. I'll try to make it up. We were hosted by Steve in St. Louis; and by Donna and JoAn in Chicago. I'm very grateful to them.

My first glance when I arrived there was a group of young people who were apparently in different ages playing soccer in the green grass lightheartedly. It r...

First week in Illinois

Posted by Martina Mohrbacher -

Laura, Keren and Ya have now been in Illinois for over a week. Here are Keren's impressions of these first days away from home: As the Chinese saying goes, long distance separates no bosom friends. We took a flight which lasts for nearly 14 hours and in a wink, we stepped on the land of Chicago. After claiming luggage, we walked out of the terminal building and then began to search for...
